About this time, I like to take out all the summer air and replace it with the cooler, denser, winter air.

@lozt247 , to be honest; after the Wife ran with that b/s for a few years after a new purchase (which was free via the dealership for 1 or 2 years), it's pretty much crap... If you're running 100% pure nitrogen, sure there is a benefit. The issue is when you need to get it 'topped off' or get new tires anywhere else. They never fully deplete the tires (using a vacuum, which causes the seal from the tire bead to break and normal air to get it), then fill it up 100% pure.

It's mostly a gimic, but the theory is correct. Just extremely difficult to produce an accurate product according to the description and actually achieve any benefit over atmospheric air... I wouldn't bother, personally.

My tpms sensors in my vehicles for the past 10+ years align with my other pressure gauges I check against. I have used nitrogen in the past to see if there was anything to it worth the hassle. In the end, all my tires filled with "plain air" hold their pressures constant provided the tire itself is not leaking.

I use a special blend of trinitrotoluene in my tires.
