Nitrogen in Tires

Our new TT has Nitrogen filled tires, how are you suppose to top off the pressure ? Before every trip i always check and top of the tire pressure. Should i just go back to good old air ????

If you have access to nitrogen, go for it. Otherwise regular old air will be just fine. It's 78 percent nitrogen anyway

Do a search here about nitrogen filled tires and you'll find many comments,both pro and con.

I just added air after a hassle trying to find a nitrogen service place. Just add good old air - it has worked for many years.

I for one call BS on nitrogen, if you monitor your TPs as you should, it will make no difference.

Many thanks guys, i will just get an water separator for my compressor and go with that. You would think they would market a compress nitrogen bottle for home use, like we are talking about !!!

I feel if tires come new with nitrogen that is a good thing....just add air and when you replace tires have the new one filled with nitrogen...or if you have a flat and are keeping the tire refill with nitrogen....course if you have flat when towing then you should replace both tires on the side the flat occurs.....good luck....

I have run 78% nitrogen in my tires from the get-go.

78% Nitrogen is easy to find at many locations.
