The New Orleans auto care experts at Twin Tire can help you decide if nitrogen inflation is best for your tires.
When you pulled into your driveway last night, you noticed the light that indicates a tire needs inflating was lit. All your tires looked okay, but you think you should probably get them topped off before you head over to the blues fest. You're also wondering whether you should switch from air to nitrogen to fill your tires.
According to the Continental tire company, nitrogen has been used in specialized tires like those found on airplanes and race cars because it helps reduce pressure variations. The theory is that the nitrogen molecule doesn't escape as easily through the microscopic pores in a tire so your tire stays inflated longer.
Deciding whether to use nitrogen rather than air to inflate your tires will depend on you, your car, your driving style and the driving conditions you face. It's a decision best made in consultation with the New Orleans auto care and tire experts at Twin Tire Auto Care.
