    I live in California in the USA. Here we have bicycle stores which sell pumps for bicycle tires. Also service stations (petrol sales stores) have air pumps which dispense air through hoses which fit on all bike tires.
    These have air gauges which show how much pressure the tire is holding. Every tire has the amount of pressure it should hold printed on the side. (usually around 30 lbs) be careful not to exceed this pressure.

    First regardless if they are good tires or bad tires replace them. Kevlar tires are what they are just barely tires just tube coverings and these tires dry-rot easily (We Roadies replace our tires yearly). As for the Air pump go to Dick's sporting goods for a Avenir air pump($20). I swear by it and the company is the same as Raleigh bikes. When you buy one get a pump with a twin pump head(Schrader & Presta) for versatility when pumping up ! Most Important read the side wall for max psi and AVOID GAS STATION AIR PUMPS they fill by volume NOT just air pressure ! Pump up by hand you wouldn't see Lance filling up his $6000 carbon fiber bike at BP would you ?

    You can get a pump at Walmart for $10. But that won't prove the tires are good. Some leaks take hours to show up.

    All the answers are good but left out one important thing- buy a pump with a built in pressure gauge. It's important to use the right pressure and you need a gauge to do that. In US, <$20.
