Nitrogen inflation is a relatively new strategy for maintaining proper tire pressure longer, resulting in improved fuel economy, longer tire life, and less wheel corrosion. That’s why nitrogen inflation is used in the most demanding applications—race cars, military and commercial aircraft, even by NASA, and now in your passenger car or light truck tires.
Air is a mixture of 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen, and 1% other trace gasses. Nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen and escape through tires at a 20-30% slower rate. Pure nitrogen also is drier than regular air.
- Fewer tire failures
- Less wheel rusting
- Properly inflated tires deliver up to 3% better fuel economy*
- Maximum tire life—up to 25% longer compared to tires under by as little as 5 psi
- Crisper, more consistent handling
- Sharper cornering
