Wheel & Valve Anodisation & Rust
Oxygen has water content which reacts with the tyre and rim materials causing oxidation or rust in wheels and valves. Nitrogen being an inert gas does not react in this way and there is no condensation build up. This in term, leads to less air leaking out from the wheel rim.
Nitrogen has been widely used for many years in the aviation sector, in aeroplane tyres, etc, and is used with great success in all forms of motor sport, especially racing cars.
Nitrogen is now available to all motorists and should you have any queries or reservations about its use in your car tyres, please don’t hesitate to ask a member of our staff who will be happy to answer your questions.
