... Nitrogen inflation for on-road vehicle tires has been studied for decades, either as a method for the tire service industry to exploit or to develop insight into tire aging. Sperberg [1] discussed nitrogen inflation as a means of improving tire life in 1967. Tokita et al. [2] discussed the use of an oxygen permeation and consumption model in conjunction with more rapid aging of tires for wheel tests. ...
