Nitrogen passes through tyre walls at a much slower rate than oxygen, meaning your tyres will remain inflated for longer
Keeping a correctly-inflated set of tyres allows them to grip the road as well as possible. However, should your tyres become insufficiently-inflated, there can be huge negative effects on performance, as well as causing damage and wear to the tyres.
Inflating your tyres with nitrogen can keep them at the correct pressure for a much longer period of time, presenting multiple benefits such as:
As well as these positives of nitrogen, there are the negatives of low pressure tyres, which are far more likely to occur with the use of oxygen-inflation. Lower pressure tyres create more resistance, meaning the vehicle has to work harder to move, increasing fuel-consumption, CO2 emissions, and negatively affecting grip, stopping distances, and overall tyre performance.
