I had my car serviced today and they asked me if I would I like nitrogen put into my tires. I had them do it. Evidently nitrogen is less likely to migrate through tire rubber than is oxygen, which means that your tire pressures will remain more stable over the long term. Racers figured out pretty quickly that tires filled with nitrogen rather than air also exhibit less pressure change with temperature swings. Any of you aware of this? It's new to me.
