AT Ozzy Tyres we USE NITROGEN FILL, WHY? If you are one of the 85% of Australians
who don’t regularly check tire pressure, you need nitrogen
We take in nitrogen with every breath. Air is composed of:
1% Water Vapor and Other Gases - Escapes up to 250 times faster than Nitrogen
21% Oxygen - Escapes 3-4 times faster than Nitrogen
78% Nitrogen - The largest molecule in
air, dry, non-flammable.
Because of their large size, nitrogen molecules are the least
permeable and stay in your tire longer.
It’s not about the nitrogen. It’s about reducing oxygen, water vapor
and other gases.
By reducing the percentage of oxygen, water vapor and other gases in
your tires from 22% to 7% or lower, your tires will maintain proper
pressure longer than if you use "plain old air." For example, with 95%
nitrogen in your tires, they retain optimal pressure three to four
Proper tire pressure is a big deal.
Maintain it with nitrogen, and you’ll see
these three primary benefits:
Increased Fuel Efficiency - Correct tire pressure keeps the
manufacturer’s recommended "contact patch" on the road. This lessens
the rolling resistance and maximizes fuel efficiency. Read On…
Longer Tire Life - When it comes in contact with other materials,
oxygen causes oxidation. Oxidation can make rubber brittle and cause
it to lose tensile strength. In addition, at high temperatures and
pressures, oxygen reacts and damages inner tire liners and belt
packages; nitrogen does not. Read On…
Increased Safety - Under-inflated tires cause 90% of blowouts.
Nitrogen provides more reliable pressure for reduced blowout
potential. Read On…
Improved TPMS Performance - If you have a new car, you likely are
plagued by a flashing light telling you your tire pressure is low. For
example, one woman’s light was going off every four to five weeks.
After inflating with nitrogen, her light didn’t reappear for 53 weeks!
More Predictable Pressure Fluctuation - Racing car teams use nitrogen so
they can more accurately predict tire pressure fluctuation. Regular
compressed air can fluctuate considerably when water vapor is present.
Longer Rim Life - Rim rust caused by condensation from water vapor
and other gases can get caught in valves and create slow leaks in
tires. Nitrogen is completely dry, so it eliminates the potential for
