Nitrogen Filled Tires for Sale in Blue Springs

NASCAR racers, the aircraft industry, the U.S. military, Formula One racers and other professional transportation industries all use nitrogen to inflate their tires. Nitrogen is an inert, dry, non-flammable gas that’s gaining a lot of popularity among everyday drivers. Initially, drivers weren’t aware of the option to inflate tires with nitrogen and the benefits of using nitrogen to inflate tires over “plain, old air.” However, nitrogen is becoming readily available at local tire stores and more easily produced for mass consumers.

Why would anyone inflate tires with nitrogen?

Nitrogen is all around us. The air we breathe is 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and small amounts of other gasses. When it comes to tires, oxygen is the culprit. Nitrogen filled tires instead of “plain, old air” helps maximize the vehicle’s handling, fuel efficiency and tire life through better tire pressure retention, improved fuel economy and cooler running tire temperatures.

Nitrogen Filled Tire Benefits

There are several benefits to nitrogen filled tires. That’s why it’s used in professional racing and the transportation industry. When filling your tires with nitrogen, you’ll experience:

Better Tire Pressure Retention

Nitrogen migrates through a tire 3 to 4 times slower than oxygen. It may take 6 months to lose 2 psi with nitrogen compared to less than a month with oxygen meaning that your car stays safer longer.

Improved Fuel Economy

You’ll get better gas mileage when you have nitrogen filled tires. As a result of maintaining proper tire pressure with nitrogen, you’ll lessen the rolling resistance. Under-inflated tires have a greater rolling resistance, allowing for worsened gas mileage.

Cooler Running Tires

Nitrogen filled tires run cooler than tires inflated with regular air.

Removal of Oxidation in Tires

Oxygen is a highly reactive element when it experiences high temperatures and pressures. Replacing the oxygen with nitrogen in your car tires helps eliminate oxidation that damages the inner liners and belt packages of your tires.

Improved Retreadability on Your Tire

Eliminating oxidation also improves the retreadability of your tire due to more flexibility in the tire casing. Less tire aging and less tire cord rust will increase the number of retreadable casings and also increase the number of times a casing can be retreaded.

Rust Elimination Around Your Wheels

Since nitrogen is completely dry, condensation is eliminated which in turn eliminates rim rust.

Nitrogen Filled Tires Increase Driver Safety

One huge benefit to consumers switching to nitrogen to fill their tires is driver safety. Vehicles have increased on-the-road reliability when using nitrogen to air up their tires. Tire failures are significantly reduced when they are filled with nitrogen. This not only reduces your risk of tire failure, but it also saves time and service calls.
