Nitro Filled Tires

Does anyone use nitro filled tires? My camper came with them but I canít seem to find anyone that can fill them.

You don't really need nitrogen, I just fill my with my compressor. The air we breathe is 78% nitrogen anyway. Here is a link to an article that explains it. https://jalopnik.com/heres-the-deal-...res-1795659391

Air, in of itself contains 21% of oxygen, the rest is nitrogen. That's why no one will have it or store it.


It's another marketing tool to make us think we are getting something special.

All the Costco's in Canada have it at their Tire centres, perhaps its the same down in the U.S.

No real advantage. While I'm not a chemist and people a lot more knowledgeable than I can correct me, but I think nitrogen tires run ever so slightly cooler and seep a little less than your air from a regular pump. Feel free to just add air to your nitrogen tires when they run low. Kind of a scam when they try to charge you for it.

Ya know, my Voltage Elite came with nitrogen filled tires and a nice sticker by the entry door.

My son-in-law, a Store Manager for Discount Tire laughed and said good luck. Every time you adjust the pressure, have a flat, change tires...there goes the nitrogen and it really isn't gaining me anything.

So the nitrogen bottle I bought at the welding store has now become the bottle I carry in my Polaris General for filling tires when needed.

Oh well,

Pirate

So I thought a little more about it and aircraft tires are nitrogen filled. Being that I work at an airport I texted one of the mechanics and he can do the full but doesnít know how much the cost is until he sees my camper.

Don't bother, you're wasting your time and money.

I was told the advantage of nitrogen filled tires was that they didn't lose pressure as bad as compressed air, utter nonsense. Mine are probably 75% compressed air after a year from "topping" them off.

Bottom Line

N2 electron cloud is larger than O2 electron cloud, hence harder (ever, ever so slightly) for N2 to leak out of tire. For practical purposes for us, doesnt make a bit of difference.
