Nitrogen Tire Inflation

Many people will ask, why nitrogen inflation? What’s wrong with regular air, the stuff we breathe every day? Well many are surprised to learn that we breathe in nitrogen with every breath we take. The Earth’s atmosphere is made up of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% water vapor/other gases. Using nitrogen instead of “just air” to inflate your tires offers you many benefits. Nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen molecules; therefore they are not able to escape from your tires as easily. By reducing the percentage of oxygen, water vapor and other gases in your tires, your tires will maintain proper air pressure longer. For example, with 95% nitrogen in your tires, they retain optimal pressure three to four times longer. So what does that mean? You will have optimal tire pressure in your tires at all times resulting in enhanced handling, improved fuel efficiency, increased safety, and extended tire life.

Proper tire pressure is the key to getting the most out of your tires. When you use nitrogen inflation you maintain proper tire pressure far better than if you use plain air. By using nitrogen tire inflation you can improve fuel efficiency and enhance handling resulting in more miles per gallon. Why? By maintaining proper pressure you keep the recommended “contact patch” on the road longer and reduce rolling resistance, meaning you use less gas. It has been proven that properly inflated tires can improve your gas mileage by about 3.3 percent. You can also increase the life of your tires by using nitrogen. Due to decreased oxidation, which occurs when oxygen reacts at high temperatures and pressures, tires do not wear as fast. A high oxidation rate can damage inner liners, belt packages, and rims; therefore, by drastically decreasing the oxidation rate you can protect your tires. Some even claim nitrogen use extends tire life as much as 25 percent meaning you will be spending much less on tires than you have in the past. Most importantly, nitrogen inflation can result in improved safety. The majority of tires blow out because the air pressure is low. When you use nitrogen inflation you no longer have to worry about low tire pressure, and therefore your chances of having a tire blowout are greatly decreased keeping you and your family safe.
