He's very keen

Didn't really need persuading, nobody has ever offered to put nitrogen in my tyres.

Re: Nitrogen v Air in your tyres

Air contains 78% nitrogen anyway so the extra 22% wont make a lot of difference

Re: Nitrogen v Air in your tyres

was a thing on tv recently(could've been watchdog) about a certain fast fit doing this on all new tyres and charging for it ...they sent a car in for tyres and then took it to have the contents in the tyre analysed and yes you guessed they were only filled with air
