Joe, I am with you on this one I have seen these big Nitrogen units for airing tires and I fail to see the advantages in spite of the claims of better fuel mileage (EVERY gimmick claims that!) and longer tire life. While MAYBE the rubber in the tire MIGHT last longer with no Oxygen inside I can not believe that tread life could be extended and since that is the end of most tires, not rubber deterioration, how the heck can tire life benefit? Maybe all this is true and someone can explain how but I remain highly skeptical at this point and I doubt that Nitrogen will ever completely replace air in tires. JMO and I am open to education on this one

Barrybomb, Now we are on to tires so I may have to start drinking with you
