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?

Air is a lot easier to find.

I have never considered anything other than simple, easy to use, air.

What is the advantage of nitrogen? Why would it be worth the hassle?

I use both! Air contains roughly (by volume) 78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.039% carbon dioxide... and it's free.

I use 36% oxygen (NITROX) when diving. I dont feel as fatigued on longer dives since the body doesnt need to expend as much energy off-gassing.

nitrogen causes the tire tempature to be lower.

This can cause tires to feel "greasy" and take longer to get up to operating tempatures.

At a track "tire warmers" are the way to go...tires are allready warm before turn 1....

No body likes cold slippery tires.

so in colder climates it is bad and in warmer climates it is good.
