Nitrogen filled tires?

This a scam from mopar or does it really make a difference? Only costs $39.95 and that includes the spare.

Nitrogen filled tires?

I heard of this several years ago and heard that it helps with keeping the correct tire pressure. Nitrogen-filled tires stay inflated about three times as long than air-filled tires. Nitrogen doesn't cause rubber to oxidize, and moisture in the air not in nitrogen also damages rubber. Costs as much as $10.00 a tire at some places may not be worth it, using it in a spare would be a good idea.

That is true in some shops. You can get the water out of a air tank, but most shops forget and this is when you can get water in the tire. A good shop will have clean lines and the tank will be drained on a regular basis, so if you find a good shop I would not waste my money. Most gas station do not empty the tank until water is pouring out of the lines, so use the gas station air hoses in a pinch only.

Nitrogen is way more stable than compressed air. Not only do you have the water issue but, the air pressure will drop when it gets cold. Nitrogen will not.
Back in the old days we used nitrogen in aircraft tires and landing gear struts for these 2 reasons. Now we have better air compressors and have gone back to compressed air (that is REALLY dry).

Yep, Nitrogen is the newest thing...My dealer and Tire places are now having this as an option when getting your tires filled. Pretty Cool.

SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!! I have a ton of info on this. The nitrogen is a benefit to long haul trucks and yes is more stable. The molecules of nitrigen will not seep through the tires as fast as air. To really benefit the nitrogen is to have the tire dismounted, rim and tire cleaned and wiped. Then remounted and the beads set with NITROGEN! Once you have nitrogen in them, you can ONLY USE Nitrogen. Any addition of air will only eliminate the nitrogen.

Just think, if you have a tire low, how do YOU fill it! It is the flavor of the year this year with nitrogen and until it is widely available I'd save my money. Check and top off your tires regularly (weekly) and your save gas, tire life and much cheaper!

If anyone wants more info, PM me and I'll send the info from my work. Save your money guys for now.
