4 Reasons Why Switching to Nitrogen Protects Your Tires

Sport Mazda understands that to many motorists, checking and maintaining tire pressures is not the first thing they think of when maintaining their car.  As long as the tires look about right they don’t worry about them until the TPMS monitor light comes on. Then it is a short stop at the filling station to put air in the low tire and on their way.  But have you ever thought that your tires may be costing you money.  We did and we now offer our owners a better way to save, Nitrogen.

Proper inflation is the key to tire maintenance. It improves tire longevity, cornering, ride quality, stability and very dramatically, fuel mileage.  For years pure Nitrogen has been used in commercial and military aircraft, Formula One and NASCAR cars, heavy-duty loaders and high-risk vehicles, to insure proper inflation that produces longer tire life and less expense.

These are four great reasons to think about putting Nitrogen in your tires.
  • Compressed Air-filled tires inflate and deflate based on temperature. That’s why your tires may look low in the morning and fuller in the afternoon heat.  Nitrofill (the brand of Nitrogen used at Sport Mazda) is not affected by temperature so that your tires always stay the same. Less fluctuation, less wear on your tires, better tire life, saves you money. (Almost 50% longer)
  • Tests by Clemson University say Nitrogen inflation in passenger cars tires can improve tire life while improving the fuel economy of the vehicle.
  • Goodyear, Michelin, Bridgestone and many other manufacturers encourage the use of Nitrogen in tires.
  • Nitrogen-filled tires maintain a better footprint on the road and improve handling, stability and stopping, making for a better and safer ride.
Still not convinced, check out the video above and the articles below.  Then make an appointmentat the Sport Mazda Service Center to get Nitrofill for your tires.  Low cost, big savings.
