Do any of you have nitrogen in your tires? Know anybody that does? Opinions and such?

I know it costs a few dollars more, but might be worth switching over.
But would of I had to do it when I first got my tires? Or could they take all the oxygen out and then put nitrogen?
I don't know just wanted to see what everybodies thoughts were..

From reading it seems like it can improve gas mileage, tire life, and be safer.

I think one of the pros of using nitrogen is that the weather wont affect it like it does normal air.Notice how when it gets cold around here our tires seem to look like theyre low on pressure.Idk if its one of those things that you have to do from the beginning

yeah, as soon as it started getting cold I'd have days where my tpms came on and days it didn't. I just rechecked and aired up my tires and its been fine sense.

More work than I'd like it to be when it does need to be aired up again so I'll stick with regular oxygen.

yeah, but you don't have to air them up nearly as much

I'm a girl....I can't remember the last time I aired anything up. I check my oil, put gas, and floor it.

its actually a better option for the person that barely ever checks their tire pressure. TPMS sensors aren't supposed to go off nearly as much, increases tire wear, mpgs, and a few more benefits.

good for inflating tires and that's it...there's a myth that nitro improves mpg...but it's just that, a myth

Agree it may be less susceptible to losing pressure but I had a friend that did it to her SUV and it was more trouble finding a location to refill.

Nitrogen is a complete and total lie. Here's what I know:
1)About the only thing it does well is hold better in weather fluctuations.
2)The tire wear and gas mileage is all based on the ability of the nitrogen to not expand/contract thus retaining its correct pressure more consistently.
3)While 4Wheel Parts does offer this service, I was told by a manager at one of their shops that it's not really all it's cracked up to be.
4)A friend of mine is a manager at a Discount Tire and put it to me this way. He said,"If there is a service or option we can offer to gain customers and increase customer satisfaction, I can promise you we will be one of the first ones to have it. We don't have nitrogen, therefore it must not be all that great."
In my personal opinion it's a waste of money, just check your tires regularly and you will be doing the same good as you would be doing if you put nitrogen in your tires.
