You can search and find web sites claiming that nitrogen in your tires will cause pressure to bleed off 40% to 60% slower. The standard time frame they use is "between oil changes" so I take that as every 3 to 6 months. It should be checked every month.
I think figures like that and the snake oil sales men at point of sale give people false security.

This is what you need to know. There are something to the tune of 8,000 wrecks caused by tire failure each year and hundreds of deaths.
I tried to search to find the DOT figures but all I get is traffic lawyers and stuff about ford explorers rolling over with firestone tires.
People shouldn't be putting nitrogen in there tires and be under the impression they can forget about checking them.

So how do we edit that wiki?
what are you rambling about????
So it's the fault of nitrogen that all these crashes happen?????

And people (100% ) checked their tires BEFORE nitrogen??????

If your not smart enough to know how to edit wiki then your obviously not smart enough to post there.
