I'd fill them with helium. That way you can carry more weight.

Or, you could fill them with Nitous Oxide. Then when you have a blow out you can just laugh about it.



So, is this information helping you yet?

Seriously though, nitrogen does hold some promise in that it doesn't permeate the walls of the tire so theoretically, it shouldn't loose air pressure. However, it can still leak out the bead during normal flex so some lose will still be there. Then there's the issue of having to carry a nitrogen tank around to top them off. I think it's still in the early stages so that you won't get any real hands-on practical experience regarding it.

You will probably get a few dumb jokes about tire gas though.
