Nitrogen versus Air—what is right for your tyre?

Thursday, November 15, 2018 1:37:56 AM Asia/Calcutta

Is nitrogen good for your tyre? Let us understand the basics. According to physics, all gases
expand and contract as they are exposed to hot and cold temperatures. The same applies to
tyre inflation pressure. It may rise and fall with respect to the ambient temperature, which is
about one psi (pound per square inch) for every 10°F. Always check your tyre pressure before
starting a long drive. It is advised to check tyre pressure before the temperature rises as the
heat generated from driving affects the pressure reading.
It is essential that we take good care of tyres to increase its longevity. The key to proper
maintenance is to maintain proper inflation and follow the recommended inflation pressure.
The user manual in every vehicle has recommended pressure value that needs to be
maintained for excellent service and better control of your vehicle. Most tyre manufactures
advice people to check tyre inflation pressure at regular intervals. Often, it is once a month
depending on usage, condition and driving habits.
