Why is Nitrogen air in your tires better than ordinary air?
Becauseof it's larger molecular size, nitrogen - a dry non-flammable gas migrates through a tire three to four times slower than oxygen. A tire filled with ordinary air will lose 1.5 PSI in less than a month. With nitrogen, this can take up to three months longer.
50-70 deaths and 10,000 injuries occur each year due to under-inflated tires. These types of accidents can be avoided with properly filled tires.
(According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2001)
Proper Tire pressure lessons rolling resistance and maximizes fuel economy.

Underinflated tires wear quickly on the shoulders and over-inflated tires wear in the center. In addition, by using nitrogen and removing oxygen, you will eliminate oxidation and condensation that can damage inner liners, steel belts and rims.
Propertire inflation ensure the recommended contact patch of your tire is on the road. This will give you better handling while driving.
