"Nitro" Tyres

Just had a set of PZERO Nero's wacked on the XR with free Nitrogen and was wondering if anyone had done the same / noticed any difference? I was told its much better than air, tyres should remain at constant pressure, no need to check pressures for at least 6mths, sounds good doesn't it?

Re: "Nitro" Tyres

I saw this advertised on a board on Saturday outside a tyre shop and was wondering what it was all about. I guessed the constant pressure but i'm not sure about it lasting 6 months. How much do they normally charge to fill them with nitrogen?

Jax Tyres said around $5-$7 bucks a tyre depending on where you go.

Re: "Nitro" Tyres

wouldn't it be a bit inconvenient - you have to go to a tyre shop to get more nitrogen when the pressure is down?

And how much does it cost when you do that?

And do they totally evacuate the tyre before filling with nitrogen?

Re: "Nitro" Tyres

I had new tyres fitted with funny looking red dust caps, so Im not sure about ones already on a car. They (Jax) said I could come back for a free top up re-check when needed. You can top them up with air but it obviously lessens the effectiveness / benefits of the nitrogen already in there.

Re: "Nitro" Tyres

steer clear of the nitrogen - It has no Positiveeffect and they charge about $4 - $10 per tyre top up

Have you driven a Ford....lateley?
