Even if you don't pay the dealership for the nitrogen in your tires, you are still getting it. They are not going to deflate your tires and then reinflate them with something else. Regardless of having the tire inflated with nitrogen, you are still going to have oxygen and moisture in the tire because the atmospheric pressure air that was in the tire when it was mounted was never removed. Nitrogen in tires is purely a profit grab from the dealer. It does not cost $50 per tire to fill a tire up with nitrogen gas. You can go to a AC supply shop and buy a tank full of nitrogen for less than $200.

Incorrect. When they fill a tire with N2, they evacuate the tire with a vacuum pump to remove the air and (more importantly) the moisture before filling it with the N2.

I have never felt the need to google anything regarding nitrogen in car tires, because common sense tells me that $200 to to do it is a rip off.

From what I read about, the tire is evacuated down to 3 psi (a vacuum will damage the tire according to tirerack), so by my math, it looks like about 1/5 of the "bad" air is still in the tire. Getting more oxygen and moisture out of the tire is certainly not a bad thing and probably will slow the rubber oxidation in the tire, but it doesn't seem like it makes any difference in car tires that get replaced every few years.

Tirerack.com, Consumer reports, and various other reliable sources have literally written articles that say nitrogen in tires is a waste of money, so I would not characterize people who don't want to spend $200 on nitrogen tire filling as ignorant.

I am not going to write any more on this subject. Like most other internet debates, this is nothing but a huge waste of precious pixels.

Yeah, we keep a 300 cuft. in the shop as well, our local guy is between $17 and $18 on it. The only tires I put it in are on the A36, even then its not really necessary.

Pv = nRT. It is a law. As mentioned above, it is about the moisture in the gas being put into the tire.


Hey--we finally caught one!
