Answer

There are several reasons why nitrogen is preferred over air. Nitrogen reduces the tyre's running temperature, also reduces pressure fluctuation due to change in temperature inside the tyre. Nitrogen leaks out slowly, Car tyre filled with nitrogen, improves the ride quality and Increases tyre life Nitrogen doesn't react with the tyre and rim materials.
