 Air compressor question

I saw an earlier post that had concerns about oil free air compressors. I just bought a Sears 5.5hp/20 gal for home use. I live in the country and will use the compressor for airing up tires, cleaning tools, changing tires, etc. Should I be concerned about the oil free compressor? What is the concern about this kind of compressor? The Sears compressor is still in the box and I am wondering if I should return the compressor and consider another option. Thanks in advance for any help.

Don't worry about the compressor you bought. For home use, it's fine. Delicate instruments and air used for human breathing or driving pneumatic medical devices must be oil free. The minute amount of oil that gets past the piston rings won't hurt your tires, tools or equipment. The water vapor that is produced by compressing air is more detrimental to pneumatic tools. It causes the innards to rust. Thats why water seperators are used on the output. The bottom line is---Don't Worry
