Is filling your new car tires with Nitrogen a bunch of hot air?

The answer to that question is, “Actually, NO, it isn’t”. In fact, replacing the “O” with some “N” will actually improve the performance of your tires on many levels.

First, it eliminates moisture since it replaces oxygen molecules, which are smaller, with bigger nitrogen molecules. Simply put, moisture (water) in a tire is not a good thing since it causes temperature variations and rim corrosion. Second, with larger molecules, it leaks at a slower rate, keeping tires inflated at the correct pressure for a longer time, which helps a car achieve maximum fuel efficiency. That means better gas mileage and less tire maintenance, and everyone can appreciate that, even me. Another interesting fact is that commercial airplanes, race cars and even many commercial vehicles fill their tires with nitrogen. They do it because of the benefits I mentioned, plus, with the even temperature, tires are less likely to catch fire. Thankfully, the average car driver will most likely never have to worry about your tires catching fire in your vehicle.

Nevertheless, knowing that your tires will last longer should ease your mind, and your wallet.
