I bought my Dodge Ram 1500 (1/2 ton truck) with 32,000 miles on it. Put nitrogen in the tires shortly thereafter. It now has 97,000 miles on it with the same original factory tires! I have to drive up a very rocky driveway, drive off-road now and then and have used the truck to haul a lot of heavy stuff (i.e. I had just over 2,000 pounds of stuff in the back when I drove from MD to AZ), so it's not due to light driving. When I get new tires on a vehicle I'm going to keep, I put nitrogen in the tires! I don't think it's the nitrogen. Also, when I went to price what it will cost me to get new tires I asked about mine. The yguy said they were middle of the road quality, so I credit the nitrogen.
