Re: Tire Inflation With Nitrogen

So does anybody know what the deal is in regards to WK2s having Nitrogen as "standard"? A couple of earlier posters mentioned their new WK2s came with Nitrogen. My new Laredo X has black caps.
There's not even any mention of Nitrogen in the manuals. Seems like if was standard on the Overlands or something it would at least be mentioned in the manual.
Maybe it's something that some dealers are doing to try and get people into the service department? e.g., "Well, since I have to go to the dealer to get my Nitrogen refilled, might as well have them look at that Widget that's been making the funny rattling noise".

Re: Tire Inflation With Nitrogen

I've ran my Jeep with Nitrogen and just air over the past month and I'm sticking with the nitrogen. The PSI stays very consistent and I just think it's better than air after reading a bunch of info online. Green caps? Blah....but they say you need them if you have nitrogen filled tires. Plus a lot of local tire places around me are doing the nitrogen thang.

Re: Tire Inflation With Nitrogen

I prefer a proprietary gas mixture of approximately 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and a number of other trace gases. Like rich mac, I've never had a problem using this mixture. I have more trouble driving over nails and screws, something I don't believe pure nitrogen would help with

Re: Tire Inflation With Nitrogen

Re: Tire Inflation With Nitrogen

I fill my tires up with Slime to the correct pressure, all this talk of air and Nitrogen is BS.

I got snow tires on my Fusion a few weeks ago and they tried talking me into the Nitrogen. What a scam. If you can't adjust the air in your tires for different temps, you have no right driving a vehicle IMO. Basic maintenance like looking at your car before driving it should be mandatory, all of this TPMS BS should be thrown away. If you are too lazy to check air pressure and get in a wreck, that's your fault. If you are driving and can't tell if a tire is losing air, you need to hang up the keys.
