American Muscle now offers Nitrogen filled tires

American Muscle - Nitrogen filled tires

Does your Ford Mustang have Nitrogen-filled tires rolling rapidly on the road, track, or strip?  Likely not, but if your Mustang (or another automobile) has the “bigger” gas in its tires, you’re well aware of the advantages Nitrogen has over the atmospheric alternative.  Long-term pressurization, less oxidation & tread wear, reduced risk of blowout from overheating are just a few of the benefits of utilizing Nitrogen for tire inflation.  The team over at American Muscle recently jumped onto the idea of providing Nitrogen-filled tires for Mustang fans shopping for wheels and tires and so far, the concept has been well received.  There’s a reason why fleet vehicles, off-road motorsports, NASCAR, Formula 1, and many others have utilized Nitrogen for years: it’s a sensible update that saves money spent on replacing tires while increasing overall performance.  Take a peek at the Press Release for more information on this offering from American Muscle.
