    Using Nitrogen in my tires

    I don't know if you guys are using it too but I find it very stable in both hot and cold days. Tire pressure stays the same all the time.

    RE: Using Nitrogen in my tires

    Do you need to top up exclusively with nitrogen or can you go to the air pumps at the fuel stations?

    Heard of it, kmart was doing it for a while but it wasn't nitrogen. Apparently decreases weight or something

    RE: Using Nitrogen in my tires

    K you're meant to just use Nitrogen if thats whats in there. I used to use itin my Civic and Skylines tires and found it great. Never lost pressure and very stable and greyfox mentioned
    \"Hey! That\'s a good looking pair of Crocs\" said no one ever. Maybe Studricho did...

    I like to use an 80% Nitrogen / 20% Oxygen mix myself

    Have had good results with that

    RE: Using Nitrogen in my tires

    The machine that loaded the nitrogen extracted (vacuumed) all the air out from my tires until they looked like huge prunes then pumped in Nitrogen up to tire spec pressures. Nitrogen does not react to temperature it does not expand on hot days nor contract during cold days.

    It's been 2 months now since I had it in my tires and since then I never had to pump it back up - the pressure is still the same now as it was the day it was pumped in

    Use helium. Great results for reducing rotating mass. If you can find hydrogen your laughing
