A service director friend of mine told me that filling tires with nitrogen has a lot of advantages. First is the fact that you will not experience the fluxuation in pressure caused by temperature changes and second is that it almost completely eliminates internal corrosion, including corrosion between the rim and the tire.
Of course, he does work for the dealership and you can always tell when they are lying... their mouth is moving! (just a joke guys!)
But it makes sense I think. Oxygen I believe causes oxidation, which causes corrosion. Isn't that how it works?

My local Costco fills the tires they sell with nitrogen.

Air is almost 80% Nitrogen. Don't worry about it.

He sells it at his dealership for about $10 a tire and offered it to me for free... I took a pass. Air's been workin' out real good for me for the past 42 years, why change now??!!!
