The Insider Scoop on Nitrogen Tire Inflation

The Insider Scoop on Nitrogen Tire Inflation

If you’re a car enthusiast, you know that proper tire maintenance is essential. And if you’re looking for a way to step up your game, nitrogen tire inflation is the way to do it. Our technicians can help you get the most out of your tires, and we’re here to tell you all about it. 

What is nitrogen and why is it used in tires? 

Nitrogen is an essential element in the air we breathe, and it is also used to inflate tires! In fact, why more people don’t use nitrogen for tire inflation yet is a mystery. Nitrogen molecules are larger than regular air molecules, which makes them slower to escape from the tire, and more resistant to temperature fluctuations. 

How does inflating your tires with nitrogen help them last longer and perform better?

Inflating your tires with nitrogen is the smarter way to go when it comes to increasing the lifespan of your car’s tires and improving their overall performance. Nitrogen, unlike air which is 78% nitrogen anyway, is a cleaner gas that lacks moisture, reducing oxidation and preserving rubber compounds more efficiently. Because it also dissipates from the tires at a slower rate, the net result is that your tire will last longer and give you a much smoother ride. So don’t compromise on quality, get nitrogen-filled tires for optimal performance in all driving conditions.

Are there any downsides to using nitrogen to inflate your tires instead of air?

Nitrogen is a great option to inflate your tires, however, there are a few factors that should be taken into consideration before making the switch. Nitrogen is generally more expensive than air and should be done professionally by your local tire shop or Grease Pro location. Additionally, regular checks of nitrogen levels in your tires are essential if you use nitrogen for inflation and want to get the full benefit from this method. Luckily, you can check tire PSI the same as you would with an air-filled tire, by using a tire pressure gauge connected to the tire valve stem.
