What Are Nitrogen-Inflated Tires?
Typically, most vehicles come with air-filled tires. However, many consumers are switching to nitrogen-filled tires because of various benefits that come with them. The air we breathe is made up of 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen, and this is what our tires are typically filled up with. Nitrogen-filled tires change this ratio to 93% or more nitrogen purity level. While some vehicles come with nitrogen-filled tires, most consumers get nitrogen filled in their tires at an auto repair shop. We at 59 Auto Repair in Plainfield can help you inflate your tires with nitrogen, whether you are doing it for the first time or if you need to get your tires reinflated.
What Are the Advantages of Having Nitrogen-Inflated Tires Versus Air-Filled Tires?
Overall, there are minimal risks from having nitrogen-inflated tires as opposed to having air-filled tires. Nitrogen is not flammable, and nitrogen-filled tires are as safe as having air-filled tires. There is also no significant difference in the running temperature for nitrogen-inflated tires versus air-inflated tires.
Here are some benefits of having nitrogen-inflated tire services:
You get more miles per gallon - Because nitrogen-filled tires bleed pressure more slowly than air-filled tires, nitrogen-filled tires can increase your fuel economy. However, the most important thing is that your vehicle's tire pressure is within the proper range. Underinflated tires can decrease your vehicle's fuel economy, whether the tires are filled with air or with nitrogen. If your tires are underinflated, your tires will also wear down faster and will be more prone to failure. We at 59 Auto Repair can check your tire pressure to ensure that you are giving your vehicle's tires the best treatment possible.
Nitrogen-inflated tires increase your tire life - Tires that are filled with nitrogen do not lose pressure as quickly as air-inflated tires, which means the tire's lifespan increases.
There is less chance that your tires will oxidize - Oxygen causes oxidation in your tires when they expand from heat and then contract when they cool, which can make the rubber brittle and can increase the chances of your tire blowing out. However, nitrogen blocks the oxidation of your tire's internal rubber. Though, it is rare that your vehicle's tires will oxidize internally unless the vehicle is rarely driven. If you have a car that is not driven much, it may be a good idea to have its tires inflated with nitrogen.
Nitrogen is a more environmentally friendly alternative - Because nitrogen-filled tires increase your vehicle's fuel economy, maintain proper tire pressure, and reduce emissions, they are the more environmentally friendly option.
