    When I have tires that have been repaired but still loose pressure overtime, Nitrogen saves me from fixing them again, air loss stops. Also since I drive close to 100k miles a year, Nitrogen saves me in tires wear and tear, a cost not taken in account in this article. I have compared durability with a year I stopped using nitrogen and was a good reason to go back to it plus it’s only about $25 at Costco for all 4 tires. In Miami there are gas stations with nitrogen fill stations at the same price of air.

    None of that should occur. Nitrogen has no impact on tire wear and tear, and the pressure loss with air vs. nitrogen is almost identical (about one psi more with air in a YEAR's time, according to a test by Consumer Reports).

    I could go chapter and verse on why, but I'll ask you - why would nitrogen have these great effects you claim?
