Nitro
Has anyone had this nitrogen tire filling? It has become the new rage here in cincy and was wondering what the benefits are?

Im not sure, but i believe it has somthing to do with expansion inside of the tire. I think nitrogen has a different expansion rate which remains more stable under higher temperatures? Ditto, it's not going to help you at all. Take the cash that the nitrogen cost and buy some pullys or somthing! tongue


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

I use nitro for servicing airplanes and the reason why we do it is that it is "dry" air and there is no oxygen which means no fire in case of a hard landing

same reason why some guys use nitrogen rather than Co2 in their paintball guns. in cold weather, you get serious pressure drops in compressed air bottles, that's why paintball players who play in winter will only run nitrogen.

In a tire, in cold weather, your tire pressure will drop, because the air in your tires will become denser, and all the molecules in the air will huddle closer together when it gets close to the freezing point outside, the air in the tire begins to reach it's condensation point. If you run nitrogen in your tires, your tire pressure will remain consistent, even in cold temperatures, because the condensation point of nitrogen gas is much, much lower than that of the atmosphere. Not a bad idea if you live in cold climates, like here in illinois. Oh yea, one more thing, it also needs to get hotter to expand, unlike normal compressed air, so after lots of hard driving, when you're tire pressure will gennerally go up, nitrogen will stay stable, and maintain correct tire pressures.

to sum it all up, nitrogen maintains tire pressures properly in all temperatures and conditions. Great for extreme driving and extreme temperatures, but not for everyone, especially if compressed nitrogen is not readily available.

Yeah i'm going to agree with what Rave669 said. I wasn't sure exactly what it did, but i was close! On a side note, Nitrogen isin't flammable?

Nitrogen is used a a fire suppressant it removes the oxygen from the air so no oxygen no fire. The air we breathe is like 79% Nitrogen the rest oxygen (i think thats the ratio)
