Nitrogen Filled Tires

This TT is the first anything I have ever owned that has nitrogen filled tires. I have only owned the TT a little under a month. Did anybody stay with the nitrogen filled tires and if so what did you do for a refill?

Thanks

I just use normal air for top up: see the following threads:

Nitrogen and Nitrous Oxide are for the Dragster enthusiasts out there.

It is supposed cause the tires to run cooler. It is a sales gimmick.

Thanks for the responses. I figured most people just start using air and that is what I will do as well.

I just use my own home compressor to inflate my tires if required. I figure 80% nitrogen is close enough anyway !!

I have nitro in my truck tires, you can top off with air, but want to have the nitro recharged when you get to a place that will do it, Costco will. The purpose is the nitro does not have any moisture to it unlike compressed air, making it run cooler, nom rust to steel rims, and less expansion/ pressure variance in the tire. The big downside is finding some one to recharge or top of nitro on the road.
