 GET SAFETY + SAVINGS WITH NITROGEN-FILLED TIRES

Driving safety-Properly inflated tires are the safest.
Nitrogen-filled tires maintain proper inflation levels longer
than air-filled tires.

Longer tire life-
Nitrogen-filled tires extend tire life (up to 30%) by promoting more even tire wear and reducing excessive heating of the tire.

Better gas mileage-By maintaining optimum pressure longer, nitrogen-filled tires help improve gas mileage and reduce greenhouse gases.

Reduce wheel and tire corrosion-
Nitrogen is a dry gas with no corrosive properties as found in compressed air.
WHY NITROGEN IS BETTER FOR YOUR TIRES AND FOR YOU
Nitrogen (N2) makes up the majority of the air we breathe and is contained in the protein of all life on earth. It is colorless, tasteless, and non-toxic. The next most common component of air is oxygen (02). Together N2 and 02 make up approximately 99% of the air we breathe and traditionally fill tires with.

 

N2 IS A LARGER MOLEDULE THAN O2
Because it's larger it doesn't escape as easily as oxygen through a porous material such as a rubber tire wall. Studies by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and private companies have shown that nitrogen escapes at a slower rate than oxygen. A tire filled with 93-95% N2 maintains its proper pressure roughly three to four times longer than air-filled tires. Proper inflation provides better fuel economy, longer tire life, superior handling, and increased safety by reducing the likelihood of loss of control due to low tire inflation, blowouts and other tire failures.

 

N2 IS A DRY, INERT GAS
N2 in a tire provides unwanted oxidation. Over time, this reaction can damage the inside of the tire and corrode wheels. Aluminum wheels are especially vulnerable to corrosion particularly around the tire bead seating area, which ultimately can impair the tire's ability to retain constant pressure. N2 on the other hand, is a harmless inert gas that does not react negatively with tires and wheels. Because nitrogen is a clean, dry gas, N2-filled tires have virtually no water in them, which reduces tire heat, decreases rolling resistance and increases fuel economy.

 

N2 FILLED TIRES ARE ALL AROUND US
All passenger planes land and takeoff on nitrogen-filled tires. Racecars, heavy machinery, military vehicles, even Tour de France bicycles use nitrogen in their tires. Nitrogen-filled tires are common in Europe where high fuel prices make every gain in gas mileage valuable. And here, in the U.S., nitrogen tire filling is steadily increasing.

CORRECT INFLATION VS UNDER-INFLATION

Correct inflation is of utmost importance when considering fuel economy, tire life, and proper handling characteristics. It is not always possible to look at a tire and detect under-inflation. However, under-inflation can cause many tire-related problems. Because inflation pressure largely determines a tire's load capacity, under-inflation often results in an overloaded tire. An under-inflated tire operates at high load which results in decreased fuel economy, sluggish handling and can cause excessive mechanical flexing and heat build up, leading to catastrophic tire failure.

 

Our service center features NitroPRO nitrogen tire filling equipment built in the USA by RTI Technologies, Inc., part of a global company that builds a full line of hi-tech automotive service equipment.

 

We recommend that drivers regularly check the air pressure in their tires and inspect them for damage or defects.
Properly inflated tires are the safest.
