I wonder what the basis was for their claim or sales pitch. I recently ran into a newspaper advertising supplement (not labeled as such but confirmed by paper's editor that what it was), that presented a claim that inflating a tire gave better resistance to Road Hazard on NHTSA test.
I asked for info on where the info came from. Eventually got answer from the PR company that wrote the supplement and they admitted there was no such data.
IMO I am wondering of someone in the nitrogen inflation business jsut decided that no one would ever check and having a claim in a newspaper could be used to sell more N2 tire inflation.
I write a blog on RV tire application and safety. RVTireSafety.com
Also give seminars on tires at RV events across the US. 40 years experience as tire design & quality engineer for major tire mfg. Freelander 23QB on Chevy chassis is my RV
