hey guys,
I just installed a new Pirelli tires

P Zero Rosso 245/40/17

and filled them with Nitrogen gas @ 40psi

the control is much better, i can take sharper turns and its perfect for street racing because the tires don't spin like the old ones :thumbs:

does filling with N2 make any difference? i know nitrogen is an inert gas, but isn't regular air mostly nitrogen anyway? well at least it sounds cool right?

Quite interesting to see a GTO with Chevy badges and bowties. The background in your photos looks like most of where I live. Nice tires.

Thank you for your comments,

Well, pure dry N2 is alot better than O2 and ozone, normal O2 and ozone destroys the tires, N2 benefits are:
-Better Maintenance of Air Pressures
-Lower Fuel Consumption
-Cooler Running Tires
-Extended Tire Life
-Oxidation is Eliminated
-Improved Retreadability
-No More Rim Rust
-On the Road Reliability
-Stronger Casings
-Nitrogen migrates 3 to 4 times
slower than Oxygen

so i guess its worth it huh? especially when you pay $347 for each tire lol, the control its a lot better but i never tried the old tires with N2. :D

Nice setup. What color is the SS? I run N2 in my drag slicks, its more stable and consistant between runs.

Could you post some close ups of the tires? The car looks great, but I wouldn't mind seeing the Pirelli tread design.

O2 only cost 25 cents at the local garage. What's the cost of N2?
