Re: Do you Roll with Nitrogen or Oxygen ????

I'm gonna throw out there that when you guys say 'oxygen' you're actually referring to 'atmosphere'. Oxygen is flammable...I wouldn't be putting that in my tires...rolling around on squishy bombs.

I guess I don't really get it, though. I mean, atmo is already over 70% nitrogen anyway (~20% oxygen / ~10% 'other' [rounded figures]) so what discernable advantage would there be to simply completing the 'missing' 30% of nitrogen from the atmosphere? IMO, the greatest advantage would be that nitrogen from a static-cleaned tank is dry, and dry is good. Atmosphere has moisture, and depending on the %RH when you decide to fill your compressor tank and pump it into your tire you'll get varying degrees of moisture in there, and wet is bad.

Re: Do you Roll with Nitrogen or Oxygen ????

What I wanna know is how you evacuate all of the "air" and replace it with nitrogen completely?

those places that sell "nitrogen" probably don't. and you end up with a mix of only about 85% nitrogen as opposed to regular "air", which is about 75% or so. they get to charge you for it, too, which is great for the tire companies.

stick with regular plain old "air" and remember to check your pressures...
