A physicist gives his thoughts on nitrogen for filling tires. He uses his physics background to explain some of the perceived benefits of nitrogen for tires (vs. compressed air). I agree with most of his theory, even that there is probably minimal benefit when compared to DRY compressed air and regular top offs. The problem, however, is that most shops dont even have an air dryer, let alone a major industrial dryer to get down to the extremely low dew point of nitrogen (-58F).
And $200 seems a bit much for nitrogen tire inflation. $5-$10 per tire seems to be the industry norm.
