Yes but it is only my buddy who runs dump trucks..... I know a lot of OTR trucks use it. Check with any of your Shops that work on big trucks... I would run it but I am always chaining my air pressure.

I had it in my car tires. The shop I used to work for had it. I wouldn't pay for it. I didn't see any large difference except my tires were always low.

always low? they claim that the tires stay the same tire pressure longer, maybe its just advertising it to be better?

I run nitrogen in my tires, have for years. I may be imagining it but they seem to last a little longer. I noticed they don't heat up as quick if they slip in the snow or ice too. I doesn't cost me anything as the tire shop I go to uses it almost exclusively. I am towing frequently, and don't run into expansion issues either.

I believe that all Costco's have nitrogen fill. If not purchasing tires, they will just charge for the fill.

It may have been the system that the shop had but they kept loosing pressure. I was loosing 1-2 psi a week on all 4 tires. I wasn't the only one who was having that problem there. They had customers complaining about it too.

Im always changing my tire psi depending if im towing a trailer across the desert or if im doing a lot of city driving. Regular air is the way to go for me.
