Nitrogen inflated tires maintain proper tire pressure longer

Tires naturally leak out air over time, especially when experiencing large temperature swings due to the walls of the tires being slightly porous. When tires get hot, the air inside expands, and the added pressure can push small quantities of air out. This natural loss of air means you may find yourself putting air in your tires more frequently than you'd like. Nitrogen has larger molecules than both hydrogen and oxygen, making it more difficult for the nitrogen to leak out. Tires filled with nitrogen will maintain proper air pressure for longer periods of time, even withstanding swings in temperature.

There are many benefits to filling your tires with nitrogen - proper tire pressure offers the following:

Checking the tire pressure
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Longer tire life
  • Increased safety
  • Improved TMPS performance
  • Longer rim life

No! Nitrogen is a noncombustible, non-flammable, and non-corrosive gas. Since it is so safe, that is why nitrogen is used to fill tires of vehicles that perform under extreme conditions like racecars or heavy machinery.
