Even if they say they're full of nitrogen, they're not. There's no way to get all the AIR out before they pump in the nitrogen... It's a sales scam... nothing more...

Actually, they remove the water vapor that is in the air unless you have a high-zoot filtration system on the inlet side of the compressor. The water vapor is what increases pressure when it gets warmed up. We used it in our roadrace tires for consistency. A few guys claimed to be running helium in their tires but the scales don't lie...
