Nitrogen Tyre Inflation

You might be aware that purified nitrogen has been used to inflate tyres on aircraft and racing cars for many years but does it really make sense for ordinary car and van tyres?

The air we breathe (and the normal compressed air used to inflate tyres) contains 78% Nitrogen, 21% Oxygen and 1% other gases. Here at Tyre Smart we like to inflate all our customers’ tyres with Nitrogen for the reasons given below.

Tyre Smart of Witham does not charge for this service and is available to all our customers when they have their tyres fitted at our premises.

Slower rate of pressure loss

– nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen molecules (which make up 21% of compressed air. The larger molecules from nitrogen make it harder for them to escape from the wheel and tyre assembly.

Less corrosion

– Unlike air there's no moisture in pure nitrogen, resulting in less build-up of corrosion on the beads of your rims. Because of this there will be less loss of pressure resulting in safer and improved drivability.
