Nitrogen Tire Inflation
for your BMW, Mercedes, Volvo
Arlington, Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW)
When it comes to tire inflation, nitrogen has many
advantages over oxygen. Nitrogen has been used by
NASCAR and commercial
airlines for years, but using it in passenger car tires is a
fairly new phenomenon.
Sam and Joe's is proud to offer nitrogen tire inflation.
normal air that we breathe contains about 78% nitrogen and
21% oxygen, yet the remaining balance contains water vapor
and other gases.
Nitrogen is considered better
for use in tire inflation than standard air because nitrogen
filled tires have noticeable improvements in vehicle
handling, fuel efficiency, gripping the road, and tire life.
Under inflation of tires between
Maintenance and Scheduled Service
Our nation loses
more than 2 million gallons of gas everyday due to
The average tire loses one to 3
lbs of air a month, and nitrogen reduces the rate at which
compressed gas diffuses through tire walls due to the
nitrogen molecules being 4 times the size of oxygen
Tire pressure is retained three
to four times longer with nitrogen.
We have found this is critical in keeping your tire pressure
optimal between services and schedule maintenance.
Tire and Wheel Life
Low tire pressure
can cause your tires to wear quickly on the shoulders while
over inflation can cause wear to the center. By using
nitrogen you can eliminate the oxidation and condensation
caused from regular air which can result in increased tire
and wheel life. Oxygen reacts to temperature change and when
temperature rises it causes the oxygen to react and it
damages tire liners.
inflated tires are known to cause up to 90 percent of
blowouts. Keeping tires inflated to the optimal pressure is
critical in lowering the risk. Nitrogen tires have
cooler running temperatures.
Nitrogen decreases the risk of blowout
because it puts less pressure on the sidewalls of the tire,
and there will be less deflation and re-inflation which
undermines the stability of the tire.
Nitrogen tires are safer,
non-flammable, and should be used to reduce the number of
car accidents due to a blowout from low tire pressure.
