The tires do change temps but less radically than just air, and you can always refill (if you have to) with air at the local gas station in an emergency like say from a nail in a non-RF.

Like I mentioned my cars sit outside when at work, and in past cars that didn't have nitrogen, the tires would be very low, then rise back up and regain like 90-95% pressure after driving on the freeway. But it always seems like I lost a little bit each time. That's not my experience with nitrogen.

If you do get a nitrogen swap don't go to a dealer, they will grossly overcharge you. The local dealer I love listed a nitrogen swap for like $300 they're still a dealership at the end of the day...
Thank you Chris, that was really helpful. Iam going to check my nearest dealership or discount tire and get some quotes. You know this is why i joined a forum, i can talk to people who have experienced it rather than trusting a sales man who just wants to make money.
