I can't afford a new one, but I got 16" wheels ordered for mine. The wheels should be here tomorrow.
Then our trailers will have something in common.

The nitrogen molecules are larger than the air ones , so it takes a bigger hole to form a leak, such as around the bead or other places. Just my 2 cents!

I guess you realize that air is mostly nitrogen. Air is a mixture of gases.

There are a few advantages to nitrogen. It leaks out thru the tire at a rate of about four times less than air. Not a big deal for someone like me who checks their pressure religiously, good for people who do not. Since the pressure is correct for a longer period of time it is possible you may get better fuel mileage and better tire wear. The nitrogen also runs cooler so therefore it builds up less pressure during use. It also reduces the ammount of moisture in the tire which can lead to less corrosion of the wheel. Sprint Cup cars have used nitrogen for years, as well as many other types of racing. You will find that this is an issue with many differing opinions, like most. I guess one of the main reasons I have it in all my vehicles is for the road side and tire warranty. That alone was worth the $10.00 per tire, for me.

Here she is!

I will try and attach a few photos I shot this morning.


I can't get the pictures to upload? Once it says the file is too large and then it says the upload failed. Any tips?

sounds like the file is just to large. Run the image through some type of app that will reduce it in size. Then try again to upload

Try again.
9 pictures (or is it 11?) then post.
9 more pictures then post again.
Facebook will only allow 4 phots at a time (or do I have that backwards?).
Anyway, you should be able to upload one at a time up to a certain number then upload more in another post.
Pictures of the inside please. We all know what the outside looks like-
