    Default Nitrogen in tires

    Members don't see this ad
    I recently purchased a 2012 5.0 and it came with nitrogen filled tires.I guess it was done by the dealer to jack the price up a bit.
    If anyone can comment like if the tires get low can i use air or do i have to go back to the dealer? Are there any advantages in using nitrogen?
    Thanks in advance

    Try helium- much better gas mileage! Hit a bump and you can travel about 70 feet before coming back down to earth!

    I have nitrogen in my tires becasue I purchased them at Costco. I believe that if you are a Costco member, you can get free nitrogen refills even if you did not purchase your tires there (not 100% sure).

    I noticed that with my Michelin tires (replaced Dunlop OEM's) they don't loose air nearly as fast. Not sure if that is the 100% nitrogen or the tire.

    The few times I have needed more pressure, I just added air (I have an air compressor) since it was not much and the total percentage of oxygen in my tires is still very small.

    That being said, my dealer, Orlando Hyundai, fills all their new cars FOR FREE. In addition, you can bring your Hyundai in at any time, and they will check and top off, again FOR FREE.

    Needless to say, I think that Orlando Hyundai (Service and Parts) is the best. Great Service and Parts Departments.

    How so? The tire doesn't know what is inflating it.

    I have read several articles on this and it is a consensus that it is a waste of $$$

    I wouldn't pay for it. Plain ol' air is just a hair under 80% nitrogen.
