A friend of mine advised me to go for Nitrogen to inflate my tires instead of using normal air; his explanation was that summer is very hot in Kuwait with temperature exceeding 50 degrees celsius and tires need maximum protection especially that we see many tires blowout on the highways.
He also says nitrogen is used for aircraft and race cars tires and it helps preventing tire blowouts, thats good to know.
So I headed to Shuwaikh to find a garage that has Nitrogen and found it at Auto 1, I think its also available at Bridgestone and other big garages. I asked how much and they said 1KD for each tire (that’s 4KD), they started deflating my tires and replacing the normal air with pure nitrogen, whole thing took about 15 minutes.
Some of the benefits for using nitrogen:
-Tires will last longer and have less failures.
-Nitrogen is less heated and is less effected by pressure so more stable driving.
-Increase fuel efficiency because tires remain properly inflated.
-Reduces corrosion for wheels.
