Are you nuts? you still have to check the pressure and yes Nitrogen will eventualy leak from a tire just like air. We had to check tire pressure everday on Aircraft and yes their tires go low too.

We use nitrogen in the circle track stock car. Using it on a car that sees open track use may make sense, but there is no need for it on the street. Air VS Nitrogen, both hold air for a long time. Nitrogen does not expand, causing the tire to grow in diameter when it gets HOT. Street use does not heat the tires that much. Circle track tires can see over 250 degrees, and street tires aren't likely to exceed 180 degrees, plus a street tire is thick and less likely to "Grow" than a racing slick.

As such Nitrogen won't hurt, but won't much much of a difference either. If they don't air them up (Using Nitrogen) with a line that has a dryer, then deflate them again to flush out the air and moisture, it will have even less of the slight effect.

Not worth it for street use to me, but to each his own, do what makes you comfortable!

I remember a tire shop trying to sell this service to me and what they stated was that air which obviosly contains h2o eats away at the rubber on the inside of the tire over time. Who I'm not sure if it's true; and I passed on the offer.

Does anyone know what gas/air. etc the tires are filled with from the factory?
My guess is regular old fashioned air.

I think you are talking about Belle Tire, I saw them advertising it on TV. As far as prices on their tires, they don't compare to discount tire.

I don't doubt that they advertise that. The shop was actually Waukegan Tire the last time I put tires on the 'ol crapalier.

Well... Except for the science lesson, we accomplished little with this thread! See what you get for asking.
