Why should I inflate my tires with Nitrogen?
Nitrogen has two primary effects: better maintained tire pressure and the removal of moisture from the tire. To learn more about the benefits those effects bring you, check out the WHY NITROGEN page.
Air is already 78% nitrogen, why pay for only a little bit more?
The focus when switching to nitrogen is not necessarily more nitrogen, but LESS oxygen and water vapor. The problem is that the oxygen permeates through the tire’s rubber at 4x the rate of nitrogen, causing you to top-off your tire more often (every time adding more moisture). Then the oxygen and moisture combine to create corrosion within the tire, decreasing your tire stability and the life of the tire.
Do I still need to check my tire pressure?
Yes, tires can still lose pressure due to leaking valve stems or small punctures so we recommend that you still check your tires to make sure that you are operating at a safe pressure.
Is Nitrogen a safe gas?
Yes. Nitrogen is a dry, inert gas that is inflammable, non-corrosive, and non-reactive. Open a jar of peanut butter and that puff sound is the sound of nitrogen gas that the food manufacturer has used to top off the jar to protect the food product in the last stage of filling.
Does inflating my tires with Nitrogen void my tire warranty?
No. All major tire manufacturers endorse the use of nitrogen for maintaining proper tire inflation pressure.
What happens if my tire pressure is low and I can't find a nitrogen service location?
You can still top off your tires with plain air, but you could lose some of the important benefits of riding on nitrogen inflated tires. But it’s better to make sure that you have the safe operating pressure and then return to your servicing dealer as soon as you can to replace the air and return to fully nitrogen inflated tires.
What benefits will I lose by putting air in my nitrogen inflated tires?
When air is present, the oxygen from the air will react with the rubber of the tires in a process called oxidation. Oxidation is one of five known factors that accelerate tire aging which means that your tires could become unsafe even if there is good tread on the tires. This is the reason that some automobile manufacturers have started putting nitrogen in the spare tire and you should too.
Are there any other benefits from replacing the air in my tires with nitrogen?
There are MANY benefits of having nitrogen inflated tires. The two main are the reduction of moisture and the retention of proper tire pressure. Some of the other benefits are: increased tread life, reduced tire failures, improved steering, improved handling, improved braking, better gas mileage, reduced tire oxidation, elimination of wheel corrosion, lower running temperatures, and a decrease in false alarms from your Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
Will I save money by switching to Nitrogen?
Nitrogen is a proven savings benefit to car owners and it will make you safer. Switching to nitrogen will save you money by increasing the life of your tire and your gas mileage.
Isn’t nitrogen tire inflation just for race cars and large planes?
While nitrogen was used primarily in race cars and large planes in the past, the benefits do transfer to passenger vehicles as well. People have been inflating the tires on regular passenger vehicles with nitrogen for over 40 years with proven results.
