The nitrogen works wonders...
Regular air is already 78% nitrogen ya know... AND it's free!


Seriously though, for race applications where the tires will see extremes of heat it has some benefit.

For street use, if you can get it free, great, it will leak very slightly slower than normal air.

Paying for it is nonsensical in a street application however.

Consumer reports did a year-long test of nitrogen vs. regular air... the result?

Over the course of the entire year the regular air tires only lost 1.3 psi more pressure than the nitrogen ones did. (Both lost pressure, 1.3 psi is the difference between the two though- very small, and certainly not worth paying for).
