Wondering if the ST will come with nitrogen in the tires, and how much does it help?
Nice link. Thank you.Perhaps the biggest advantage of using nitrogen, and it's really not that big, is less moisture in your tires. You will probably find wide variation in opinion on this subject. I think this write up at Tire Rack is pretty good...
Tire Tech Information - Clearing the Air About Nitrogen Tire Inflation
Don't forget, regular "air" is composed of about 78% nitrogen.
My dad's F150 with Ecoboost came with Nitrogen filled tires from the dealership, and I noticed a lot of other trucks had the green caps on the lot too.Unless I'm really out of the loop, I don't know of any manufacturers that do this from the factory.
It helps with pressure stability under variable temperature fluctuations, for sure. Little variation with ambient/road temps.
What benefit are you looking for, specifically?
I was wondering if there would be a charge from the dealer everytime I needed air....Note he said came from the dealer with nitrogen filled tires, this is something dealers do. They will take new unsold vehicles that are on the lot and do things like fill the tires with nitrogen and raise the price of the vehicle by ~$30 and make a little extra profit. Some will also tint windows in cars, and add other small tid bits all to raise the profit margin more.
