Belle Tire will offer nitrogen inflation

April 11, 2006

Allen Park, Mich.-based Belle Tire Distributors will start filling passenger and light truck tires with nitrogen at stores in Ohio and Michigan on April 17.

"We're committed to bringing our customers the best technology, performance and safety available anywhere," says Belle Tire President Don Barnes.

Belle Tire has even come up with its own term to describe tires that have been filled with nitrogen: "Nitro-Nized."

"Nitro-Nized tires maintain proper pressure up to three times longer (than air) because nitrogen diffuses through tire walls more slowly."
