WHY NITROGEN?

To Maintain Proper Tire Pressure

Because of its larger molecular size, nitrogen migrates through a tire three to four times slower than oxygen. A tire filled with “plain old air” will lose 1.5 PSI in less than a month; with nitrogen, this could take three months longer.

Increased Fuel Economy

Proper tire pressure reduces rolling resistance and maximizes fuel efficiency.

Improved Handling

Proper tire inflation ensures the recommended “contact patch” of your tire is on the road.

Enhanced Safety and Reliability

Under-inflated tires cause 90 percent of blowouts. Nitrogen provides more reliable pressure for reduced blowout potential.

Extended Tire Life

Under-inflated tires wear quickly on the shoulders, and over-inflated tires wear in the center. In addition, removing oxygen eliminates oxidation and condensation that can damage inner liners, steel belts and rims.

Better for the Environment

Anything that improves fuel efficiency and reduces toxic emissions is good for the environment, and nitrogen in your tires can help.
Ever try pushing a wheelbarrow or riding a bicycle with low air pressure? Tires with low air pressure require more energy to roll… more energy equals more gas. Express Tire offers Lifetime Nitrogen – we’ll keep your tires filled with Nitrogen for the life of the tire. Nitrogen helps to maintain proper tire pressure up to 3 times longer than air, and will improve the safety and reliability of your driving, as well as improve gas mileage and extend the life of your tires. Less gas used is better for the environment.
