Atlantic Tire & Service will be happy to fill your tires with nitrogen. Nitrogen is an alternative to compressed air, the traditional medium for tire inflation. It enhances safety, adds to the life of the tire and improves gas mileage. Following are some more detailed facts about nitrogen:
- Enhances Safety – Tires filled with nitrogen maintain their pressure up to 40% longer than regular compressed air. This means greater handling, control and grip for your car, which minimizes the danger of catastrophic road failure.
- Lengthens Tire Life – Tires filled with nitrogen can increase the life of your tire by 30%. Because nitrogen is a clean, moisture-free gas, it slows down internal tire oxidation, which in turn slows down the aging of you tire.
- Improves Gas Mileage – Tires filled with nitrogen improve gas mileage by as much as 6%.
Note: Even with nitrogen tires, it is still important to check your tire pressure periodically. Next time you visit Atlantic Tire & Service for a routine service, have your tires checked and re-inflated with nitrogen. This simple and affordable process really will pay off!
