Many drivers fill their tires with regular air, but did you know that there are other options out there? Like NITROGEN! Filling your car tires with nitrogen has risen in popularity over the years. Read to learn about its benefits and if it is the right option for you.
The biggest benefit of filling your tires with nitrogen instead of regular-degular air is tire pressure. We all know what a pain it can be to monitor and fill your tires up constantly. Since Nitrogen’s molecular composition is larger and moves slower than compressed air, making your tires hold its psi for longer periods of time. If you want lower maintenance on your tires, nitrogen air is the way to go.
Why Is Tire Pressure So Important?
When you drive with optimal tire pressure, you help your tires last longer and wear more evenly. Additionally, it improves fuel efficiency as it minimizes resistance. Last but not least, it has major safety benefits. Properly filled tires offer great handling and minimize your risk of a tire blowout.
The only drawback to filling your tires with nitrogen air is that it is not as accessible as compressed air. Most gas stations don’t have it, so you must bring it to a specialized auto shop that offers the service. Therefore, it also costs money. While it is not expensive, compressed air is often free at local gas stations.
There is no clear winner between the two options – it is up to you whether you think nitrogen-filled tires are right for you.
