None of of the air compressor used for Car tires can be used to fill up to 145 PSI. Practically, Max up to 40-45 PSI is what they are designed for.

If any of the compressor has to fill up to 145 PSI, then the motor should have the capacity to fill at least 2 times i.e., 290 PSI within its tank. This is possible only if the motor has the large power rating to compress the air in the tank in spite of its increasing pressure.

if operating voltage is 12 V, then current rating has to be very very high which car battery won't be able to supply.

So, theoretically, it is not possible with car tire inflators
