Formula 1. NASCAR. IndyCar. World Rally Circuit. These race series represent the pinnacle in motorsports. Budgets are virtually unlimited and competition is fierce as drivers fight their way to the front every second of every race. When it comes to the cars, superior technology is essential, and every team is on the cutting edge. Among the many weapons they share in their drive to Victory Lane is nitrogen in their tires.
Why nitrogen? Simply put, it far exceeds conventional air inflation in performance, durability and long-term savings (the last of which likely means more to you and me than the Pros). Recognizing the inherent benefit of nitrogen-filled tires, AmericanMuscle is now offering this as an option with all mounted wheel and tire orders. Even better, it’s free. That’s right, I said FREE. Many shops offering nitrogen fills today are charging upwards of $10 a tire. Any way you slice it, that ain’t cheap.
The benefits of nitrogen tire inflation are obvious, and extensive. Nitrogen is an inert gas, so pumping it into your tires eliminates the presence of oxygen and water, both of which are sources of many tire problems. Here are just a few of the benefits of nitrogen:
- Better Performance: Nitrogen-filled tires maintain the same pressure, regardless of ambient and operating temperature. With no water to radically expand and contract with temperature changes, tires keep a constant pressure. This means better performance when things get hot.
- Longer Tire Life: Operating tires at the incorrect pressure is the primary cause of uneven and premature wear. Compared to oxygen molecules, nitrogen molecules are much larger and unable to permeate the tire sidewall. Some reports suggest that nitrogen-filled tires maintain their pressure up to three times longer than non-nitro tires.
- Better Fuel Economy: Under-inflated tires mean higher rolling resistance that requires additional fuel to maintain speed. Tires that don’t lose pressure keep your fuel economy right on track.
Further proving AmericanMuscle’s commitment to offering Mustang owners the total shopping package, the new nitrogen inflation program is offered along with free mounting and balancing, and shipping on all wheel and tire purchases. Add in the company’s guarantee that all mounted wheel and tire packages will ship within three days of ordering and clearly AmericanMuscle.com is the best place to buy wheels and tires for your Mustang, bar none.
