So i got stuff today at Costco and asked the tire department if i can come by when i need my tires checked they have nitrogen inside and the studio is out of the way.. they said anytime and in 5 minutes i was all hooked up.....they took out air pressure from my tires....the result is a more comfortable ride....check your air pressure and if you have Costco nearby Free Nitrogen

Dude, if it's free then score, but unless you're racing it's not worth the trouble. Even then I doubt it would make the difference.

I had nitrogen in the tires from the dealer. They are too far away for check ups. And Costco will do it for free. Just passing on a good deal. If sOmebody else has nitrogen in their tires

I hope you don't really have NO2 in your tires. Maybe N2.

IMO, vastly overrated for street cars. Remember air is 80% N2.

Air also tends to contain moisture which can corrode and damage your TPMS and the sealing bead of your tires. Nitrogen is a good solution to preventing corrosion inside your wheels so if you can get it, use it. TPMS replacement can get expensive.

I just got a new membership yesterday at Costco.

I don't think I want the Costco guys touching my cars anymore. They screwed up my alloy wheels big time on our Accord. Even if it's air. I now have a distaste for them, and their tire department. I can put air in my own tires.
