nitrogen for tires

where can you get nitrogen for your tires? The latest on tire inflation is to use nitrogen for a quieter and better gas mileage.

The air you are breathing is 78% nitrogen, do you want more than that?

I am not so sure about that? I have nitrogen in my tires but now only use air which, as stated above, is 78%. I saw it posted that it cost $10 per tire for nitrogen?

IMHO pure nitrogen really doesn't make a significant enough difference to justify the cost.

The only real advantage is the lack of moisture in a "pure" nitrogen-filled tire (I say "pure" because, unless the tech is sealed inside a nitrogen filled room wearing breathing apparatus, you're always going to have some plain "air" sneak into the tire during the mounting process.) The lack of moisture is nice, especaily if you live in an area whre things are prone to rusting prematurely. But it has no effect on gas mileage, treadwear, ride quality, or the price of tea in China. 80 PSI is 80 PSI--your tires don't know the difference if they're filled with nitrogen, helium, argon, hydrogen (not recommended anyway, see also the Hindenburg) or plain old compressed atmospheric air.

Also--you'll get more answers to your questions if you don't make your username the subject of your thread...
