Nitrogen filled tires

So fri finally will have the money to order the rims and tires that I have always wanted... Wondering what is the advantage of having nitrogen filled tires and should I get it? They are off AM so it's free

I think their is a difference since I've been running nitrogen for two years. Tempatures in las vegas vary from 20deg f in the winter to 120 deg f in the summer. My tire has less pressure fluctuation with temp changes.

Here's a article for you to read.....

Nitrogen vs Air In Tires - Why Nitrogen in Tires - Popular Mechanics

Also, for those of you that run nitrogen Ted Wiens will fill your tires for free at participating shops.

Race teams world wide have proven the temp fluctuation is very minimal at best. Even in a motorcycle race tire that gets extremely hot.. 5* max.. If you get it free and free refills go for it. If you have to pay you'll be throwing money away.

Without nitrogen my tire psi fluctuated 10-15 psi every two months and with nitrogen my tire psi is minimal of 3-5 psi every six months.

I would definitely not pay $30-40 a tire fill for nitrogen. I get it for free and it's a plus.

I say to anyone out there...try it if you can get it for free and you decide?

The thing about that is that its way more stable than normal air. It will stay the same no matter the temp out side and it heat up at all.

I heard it don't hold moisture also so it won't corrode your rims

...you do know the majority of air is nitrogen right? If your tires are fluctuating that much in normal driving you have something else going on
