<<Air is about 79% Nitrogen. It's a scam.>>

How can it be a scam? I’m sure there are exceptions around, but every place I’ve seen that offers nitrogen doesn’t charge anything more for it. Costco, which has the cheapest tires and installation around (here), uses only nitrogen.


It depends what you're paying for the nitrogen. If it's free, take it.

But unless you're running a Formula One race car in competition, it's of only marginal benefit. I wouldn't even pay $2 more for a set of 4 nitrogen-inflated tires.
