Nitrogen tyres

Hey all just thought i would ask you for your opinion. I had 2 medium front wheels fitted today to my works van and was given the option of filling them with nitrogen for a £1 a tyre. Has anyone experienced using nitrogen tyres and if so are there any disadvantages

thanks all

What is the cost of a refill?

Most garages are free air, Free Mmmmmmmmm, nice.
banned#2
the disadvantage is it costs a quid

normal air is free

they both leak out at the same rate. dont go with this nonsense
#3
Refill is free for the life of the tyre if i use the same garage i bought the tyre from. I was told air retention was alot higher than for normar air?
#4
The AA website seems to think its good, but its still £1 a tire, nitrogen is bigger then air so there is less prssure loss http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/safety/filling-tyres-with-nitrogen.html

Does it make your voice go all funnyyyyyyyyyyy
#6
its only a quid!!!!!!!

Fill the tyres with rice pudding, that wont leak out either

as air is already 78 percent nitrogen i cant see it doing much
#8
its recommended by the rac and the AA so cant be that bad

reading the AA i rather got the impression it wasnt worth it?

I found this:

...................., by using it to reduce the concentration of oxygen in a tyre it possible to equalise the partial pressure between the air inside each tyre and the surrounding atmosphere.

As a result, the common problem of slow deflation caused by oxygen slowly leaking through the tyre wall is virtually eliminated, thereby ensuring that tyres remain at their correct pressures between vehicle servicing............

I get my Michels from Costco and they always use Nitrogen and frankly I don't notice any difference drive wise but I do feel they leak less air....

That's helium.


Never heard of Nitrogen being used to fill tyres before.... got to be worth a pound though if reports seem positive.
#14
I fill mine with helium.

Cons: The drive feels funny, + slower and harder to handle.
Pros: Traffic Wardens cant reach your car when its parked on the roof.

You're from Scotland.
It allready IS funny. :-D

gtrs have nitrogen filled tyres and it makes a difference, if you have a fiesta it won't though
#17
I've got Nitrogen in mine and I can't tell the difference other than I haven't had to have to add a top up to them as they have held the pressure well
#18
Ok hold a minute.

If you fill your tyres with compressed air( N2 (nitogen) 79% and O2 21%) at a filling station and only the oxygen escapes then surely only after a few top ups the remains will be only N2!!

Please correct me if im normal

How can I tell if you're normal?

why are you making jokes about nitrogen and floating cars thats helium morons!!!!!!!!!!!

Nitrogen escapes too but at a lower rate.

I have a certificate to say im normal. Well at least until the next episode!

As long as you don't keep checking your type pressures it is great. I have not checked mine in 6 months since the nitrogen fill, and they look fine.

If you are one of the sad acts who insist on checking type pressures every week or so, then it is no good as it will dilute all the time and lose effect...

Get it done, and forget about your tire pressures as they probably won't need checking..

No TD, the question is actually does anybody else on planet know or care what you are talking about?
