The Benefit of Nitrogen in Tires

Increases Safety

In 7 million miles of truck tire testing, nitrogen inflated tires lasted longer.
Tire failures were reduced by 50%
Tread life was increased by 25-30%

Improves Performance

Nitrogen in Tires:

  • Improves steering
  • Improves handling
  • Improves braking
  • Reduces chance of tire failure

Saves Time, Money, and Tires

Nitrogen in Tires:

  • Dramatically slows pressure loss from permeation
  • Improves fuel economy
  • Reduces tire oxidation
  • Eliminates interior wheel corrosion
  • Reduces running temperatures
  • Decreases false alarms and activation of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

Nitrogen vs. Oxygen

Oxygen leaks out of tires faster. Nitrogen maintains tire pressure longer than oxygen. The oxygen molecules in compressed air are smaller and leak out three to four times faster!
