I have nitrogen in both of my vehicles. Pressure stays the same whether its -40 or +40 (c). Yes, it can be topped up with regular air. You are good to go.

Nitrogen is something they invented to pay their kids college.

If you paid any extra for nitrogen and it makes you feel better, go ahead and believe that it makes a difference. JMHO

Unless your trailer tires were inflated in a vacuum, there is already plenty of good old fashioned air in them, along with the nitrogen. It's a bit of a scam, but there are plenty of believers to keep them in business.

Well since EVERY racing team uses it in their tires to maintain a consistent pressure during a race, I guess you could call it a scam on the unknowing public....

You don't have the equiptment to use nitrogen in your tires to any real advantage. When
A tire is mounted the space in the tire is full of air. Unless you get that air out all you can do is add nitrogen to the air. Race cars fill and empty the tires many times to reduce the volume of air in the tire. And not all teams do this because they use the increased pressure to advantage. A slack new tire yields a quick restart and the buildup from heat yields the race setup.

Your tires might be marked as nitrogen filled but they are nitrogen filled on top of air.

It is a scam on a unknowing public. A racing tire does not remotely compare to a road tire. They are not filled the same or used the same.

I googled "nitrogen in tires - good or bad"



Read the reports and make up your own mind.

OOOO000ooo!

Overpasses could become a problem!

I raced for 28 years and never used nitrogen. It was an unnecessary expense, and I was on a budget. I've known a few guys to use nitrogen over the years, but not many. I'm sure it's much more commonplace in higher forms of racing.

Auto and tire manufacturers know tire pressure will expand with use. They set the spec cold air pressures accordingly.
