Nitrogen tire inflation improves fuel efficiency by maintaining proper tire pressure for a longer period of time. Proper tire pressure improves fuel efficiency anywhere from three to six percent. That might not seem like a lot, but with gas prices the way that they are, the less money we can throw away, the better.

Nitrogen-filled tires have a longer life because they don’t have the corrosive properties that come with air-filled tires, mainly the oxygen and the water vapor. Not only does oxidation ruin the rubber in the tire, but both the oxidation and the water vapor can affect the aluminum and steel wheels on the inside.

Nitrogen-filled tires create a smoother, safer ride. With underinflated tires, there is less contact area between the tire and the road surface. This leads to reduced steering control and a greater potential for blowouts.

Nitrogen-filled tires are a way to go green. Over 300 million tires are disposed of every year, and nitrogen tire inflation can reduce this amount by 30%. Also consider the fuel savings as another way to go green and to cut down on carbon emissions.

Using nitrogen tire inflation versus conventional air in a tire effectively maintains the correct amount of tire pressure for longer and as a result, creates a smoother ride while improving steering and braking, while reducing the possibility of blowouts. Conventional air filled in a tire contains 21% oxygen with varying moisture amount. Air permeates through a tire wall over 3 to 4 times faster than Nitrogen, according to a Bridgestone statement. Oxygen molecules and moisture cause the air to diffuse thru tire rubber, THE basis for slow leaks, and deterioration of the tire and its durability. Another great advantage is the convenience of not having to refill tires as often. All American made cars fitted with tire pressure sensors will benefit because nitrogen reduces TPMS exposure to oxygen and moisture.

NITROGEN TIRES IN THE MEDIA

"Gas mileage is king these days. People are buying fuel-efficient cars, taking less road trips, anything to reduce money spent on gas. But one of the real culprits may be under-inflated tires, which can decrease gas mileage up to 10 percent.

Tennesse-based GoNitroTire takes tire efficiency one step further, providing a product to fill your tires with nitrogen instead of oxygen. We discussed this technology with GoNitroTire Founder Ken Lawton..."

Making City Buses Run Cleaner Yields a Big Bonus: Fewer Trips to the Gas Pump Studies have shown that nitrogen is better for tires than plain air, according to Stephen Martini, the assistant chief officer of maintenance for the department of buses. Nitrogen leaks from the tires at a slower rate, meaning they have to be filled less often. And the pressure in nitrogen-filled tires is more likely to remain constant despite fluctuations in temperature. Normally, the pressure in air-filled tires rises as they heat up and falls as they cool...

INFORMATION ON NITROGEN TIRE INFLATION SAVINGS

According to Fleet Equipment Magazine (FEM), Technology & Maintenance Council, Rubber Manufactures' Association (RMA), and Bridgestone/Firestone's TireSafety.com, the single most important factor for increasing tire life is maintaining proper air pressure, with Nitrogen Tire Inflation this is accomplished more easily.

GIVE YOUR TIRES A SHOT OF NITROGEN WITH TIRE XTENDER Nitrogen is about safety, money savings through fuel economy, and improve our environment through longer lasting tires.

  • Nitrogen is not subject to fluctuation as outside temperatures rise and fall.
  • Nitrogen provides uniformly inflated tires. Which gives your vehicle better performance in fuel savings and improved tire wear.
  • Nitrogen inflated tires also provide superior handling characteristics - another reason it is used by serious professionals whose lives ride on their tires.

Benefits of Maintaining Proper Tire Pressure with Nitrogen

  • Increased Fuel Efficiency — Correct tire pressure keeps the manufacturer's recommended "contact patch" on the road.
  • Longer Tire Life — At high temperatures and pressures, oxygen reacts and damages inner tire liners and belt packages; nitrogen does not.
  • Increased Safety — Under-inflated tires cause 90% of blowouts. Nitrogen provides more reliable pressure for reduced blowout potential.
  • More Predictable Pressure Fluctuation — NASCAR teams use nitrogen so they can more accurately predict tire pressure fluctuation. Regular compressed air can fluctuate considerably when water vapor is present.
