Well Herk...right on the money or not, it will not end the debate. I just can't see paying more than I already have to (when I do have to pay for it at a station). Plus, I've only seen a couple of places that even offer it. If there were substantial proof that it really did any practical good, and was more readily available, I'd be all over it.

Jack..I suppose the bottom line is, if it works for you, great. As long as we can all get out and have a great time camping, that's what is really important!

Ed,
I think you misread the link.
I am an "air is OK for land use tires" guy and the link has the same opinion.
There are reasons for nitrogen in military and commercial aviation tires. One of them is when the tires pop from the heat of a wheel well fire, the nitrogen will not support combustion and can actually extinguish the fire if the wheel well doors are closed. Most civil aviation tires use regular air.

Since tire pressures are checked and "topped off" if needed on every preflight it really does not matter what is in them. Most FBO's just use an air compressor to fill and maintain the tires.

I like the Argon idea. Hydrogen would be bad, even though a case could be made for lightening the trailer's GVW.
Opinions are universal and are issued "one each" to everybody.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion; just not their own facts.
