Nitrogen tire fill does virtually nothing for performance or longevity on consumer cars. The air we breath (and fill our tires with) is 78% Nitrogen already. It's a gimmick.

But it's nice to know it's there I guess. If it's free, cool, but for $$$, no way. Just check your tires once in a while and free air is cool.

Quote:
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has seen reduced aging of tires filled with nitrogen. Though the data does support that passenger car tires could benefit by all the claims made for nitrogen, tire manufacturers say that they already design tires to perform well with air inflation. And while nitrogen will do no harm, manufacturers say that they don't see the need to use nitrogen, which generally adds $5 or more per tire charge.

Unfortunately this is case of it's "all about the money".

That's $20 a car, multilpy that by 200,000 cars, that's $4 MILLION dollars. That's why...

As far as that test is concerned, I doubt that they did their testing in AZ where it gets 100+ daily. There's a reason why manufacturers test their cars here.


IT's an old, OLD racers trick to use nitrogen in the tires, nitrogen is lighter than O2.

Plus it doesn't expand and contract with temperature because there isn't any moisture.

You don't "need", but there is definitely a benefit to using it, google will yield a fair amount of info.

There should be moisture removers on the compressors at any good tire shop regardless on if it's Nitrogen or air.

Weighs less?!?1 Come on.

I fill pressurized vessels with air to 7500 psi and it only weighs an extra 100 grams (0.22 lbs). How much are you really saving in a tire? It's a bigger volume than my pressurize vessels, but they are filled to considerably less pressure. If you are relying on air vs nitrogen for the competitive advantage, it's hopeless. A lot of "old racer" tricks are bs based on rumors and not science.

Also aging of tires?!?!? I will guarantee you that the sun light that hits your tires EVERY SINGLE DAY when you park outside or inside degrades your tires far faster than air vs nitrogen ever will.

I might be able to hear the argument for nitrogen in commercial truck applications with ultra-high pressure tires that must be checked weekly (as nitrogen does escape slightly slower) and nitrogen may help to save fleet maintenance costs (of checking and filling tires constantly).

Also, it adding $5 a tire is the sales cost, not the cost of nitrogen. You seriously think a manufacturer has to pay $5 for each tire if they wanted to fill with nitrogen? If they only pay $15 for an airbag system from me (Read: small pyrotechnic gas generating device with 20+ components), I doubt nitrogen would cost them $20 a car.

Freebies are cool and the thought is appreciated. I'm not knocking Frank. He's been nothing but good to us and he will be successful because of it (reputation and word-of-mouth are paramount in the car world and he's getting a lot of thumbs up around here). Go get your nitrogen and your green valve caps.

I used to be on an electric vehicle racing team, decreasing drag and resistance has much more of an effect on battery life than anything. We definitely gained a few extra laps on the track before the battery lost considerable speed when we filled the tires with nitrogen.

It's probably minute, but any weight you can save on unsprung weight and by moving the center of the gravity of the wheel inwards is free performance, you are putting less mass in to get the same pressure as air. I know they only use nitrogen in airplane tires and most racing teams do, mostly for consistency in pressure, but here in AZ, you tires can go from well below 80 degress at night, to well over 110 degrees+.

When a buddy of mine bought an impala from midway for his "baby momma" he was telling me that they fill all their tires with Nitrogen and that he was getting 40mpg. I've definitely been more interested in trying it in my own tires since then.

There's no argument, you can use it if you want or not use it. I don't have nitrogen in my tires, I never really got around to doing it, but now that Frank has been generous enough to offer it, I may make my way down there, just to see if I can get better mpg out of the 4wd truck.

I guess the real test is that a bunch of people that know exactly what kind of mpg they get currently, go down to Subaru and try some out and report the results.

No, her dad has been a master mechanic for chevy for 30 years, he got this car dirt cheap.

I wouldn't buy one, only chevy trucks or performance cars, but they haven't had ANY problems with that car. No wheel bearings going out, A/C cutting out, fuel lines under the manifold leaking.

I believe that is one of the cars where chevy had started to get their **** together.
