Do you Roll with Nitrogen or Oxygen ????

.

I think most are aware of the benefits of Nitrogen vs. normal air in car tires.
And we're seeing more and more cars and trucks with Nitrogen in their tires off the showroom floors. More Stable, less heat expansion, more consistent Pressures, and less Oxidation on the inside .
All the Nascar teams around us say they use Nitrogen in their tires. Plus we have always put it in the tires on our cars the past several years

Does anyone here use Nitrogen in their motorcycle tires? Street or Race bikes?
As it seems you don't have to mess with the tire pressures as much with Nitrogen.

Thoughts?

I know ppl who do. It seems to hold pressure better and holds it more steady.
I've used helium before, but it leaks down kinda fast

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

There's one spot by me who is starting to do this for customers, but it isn't cheap, but it would be sweet to not worry about tire pressures!

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

o2 here, since that's what I'm most comfortable with for checking hot/cold pressures and temp changes throughout the day.

I guess if I had nitrogen in my garage I might use it.

78% Nitrogen
21% Oxygen

I work hard to maintain the ratio....
