How much do you currently pay attention to tire pressures as they warm? What PSI range do you try to keep the tire in when driving?
If you don't have answers to both of these, then nitrogen is probably a waste of your time and money. If you obsess over these things and want to eliminate some variance, then it will help.
I use strictly air
I can say living in a snow climate. Where it’s not uncommon to see -20C temps. Generally it’s about 5psi difference.
But when there are days that start out at -28C and by 2pm it’s +10C. I can see 8-10psi difference there
I will say this about nitrogen. My friend bought a brand new car with nitrogen filled from the factory. She got a brand new set of rims and tires for winter. (Air)
She stores her tires at my place. I can say that over the course of 5 years. Her nitrogen filled tires has lost about 2 psi.
Her winter air filled tires loses anywhere from 5-15psi each time over storage.
I check the tire pressure everytime before she puts her tires on.
No tire has ever had a puncture
