Itís not just about adding more nitrogen; itís about reducing the amount of oxygen and moisture in your tires.

1. Reducing the oxygen level in your tires from 20% to about 5% is very important.
• Oxygen permeates out through your tires 3-4 times faster than nitrogen, resulting in faster pressure loss.
• Oxidation occurs when oxygen reacts at high temperatures and pressures like those in a tire. It breaks down the tire's inner liner as it migrates out through the rubber and can damage any metal components including rims, TPMS sensors, valves, and tire repairs.
• Oxygen supports combustion, while nitrogen is inert.

2. Nitrogen inflation eliminates the moisture and contaminants found in compressed air.
• Moisture speeds up the oxidation process which can rust steel belts as it permeates out through a tire and cause corrosion around the rim at the tire bead.
• Contaminants can clog valve cores and create small leaks.

While nitrogen will help you maintain proper pressure, you should still check your tires on a regular basis and/or as recommended by the tire manufacturer.
