I think I mentioned this a long time ago, but one of the advantages of nitrogen over common air is the lack of moisture in it. Moisture in air can condense, freeze, and cause the bead sealer to separate the tire from the rim, and it can cause steel rims to rust. It may be worthwhile then for winter tires, which are often mounted on cheaper, plain steel rims.
