Nitrogen Tyre Inflation
The Air in your tyre is 78% nitrogen, about 21% percent oxygen, with the remainder water vapour, CO2 and small concentrations gases such as neon and argon.
There are some reasons to use pure nitrogen in tyres, but the main and most important one is that nitrogen is less likely to migrate through tire rubber than is oxygen. This means that your tyres will stay inflated to the correct pressures for longer and will remain stable for a longer period of time.
It will also help:
- Reduce wheel corrosion
- Increase Tyre Life
- Improve fuel consumption
- Reduce wear
