The Future of Tire Pressure
Nitrogen is a day, inert gas that does not leak out of a tire as quickly as air.
Therefore, your tire will hold the correct pressure longer.
By Maintaining your correct tire pressure longer, nitrogen will maximize:
- Fuel Economy
- Tire Life
- Safety & Reliability
… and it’s better for the environment!
Tire Pressure and Tire Life
Under-inflated tires wear quickly on the shoulders and over-inflated tires wear in the center. It is important to maintain your tires regardless of what they are inflated with. However, since nitrogen maintains tire pressure longer, the amount of maintenance is reduced and tire wear is minimized, increasing the life of the tire.
Proper tire pressure lessens rolling resistance and maximizes fuel efficiency. Nitrogen allows you to reap the benefits of properly inflated tires – including better fuel economy!
Safety & Comfort
Under-inflated tires cause 90 percent of blowouts and incorrectly inflated tires make the ride stiff or bouncy. Since nitrogen stays in the tire longer it provides more reliable pressure for reduced blowout potential and a smoother ride.
Proper tire inflation ensures the recommended “contact patch” (the part of the tire that contacts the road surface) is on the road, ensuring it handles the way it was designed.
Helping the Environment!
Proper tire pressure saves fuel and prolongs tire life, which means fewer fuel emissions and fewer resources and energy used on tires.
