New Nitrogen Tyre Inflation Station

TyreFinders Invest in A New Nitrogen Tyre Inflation Station

TyreFinders Redruth has just invested in a new Nitrogen Tyre Inflation Station.  This fully-automatic station provides an even faster, simpler operation.  We simply connect the hose up to the valve and set the required pressure, and then the machine will automatically purge the tyre and then switch to refill with nitrogen to the pressure selected.

Nitrogen has much better pressure retention properties than compressed air, which means your tyres remain at the correct pressure for much longer. The five main benefits of using nitrogen to inflate your tyres are:

1: Better handling and road holding

2: Reduces tread wear and increases tyre life by up to 25%

3: Correct inflation pressures reduce puncture risk by up to 33%

4: Reduced rolling resistance improves miles per gallon by 2%

5: Improved pressure retention

TyreFinders  fully endorses the use of nitrogen as an inflation media and will use it to inflate your tyres for a small fee, but only ever on your say so.  If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
