Since Nitrogen is dry , elastomers (Tries are basically an elastomer) that under go long time exposure to Nitrogen can dry out, before the same elastomer would on air.

Granted most tire use is not going to see long time exposure.
Since the tire will wear out long before, and they are relative thick walled,and I never heard of the inside of a tire drying out from the use of Nitrogen.

So yeah its likly not going to ever happen.

But really why bother unless you are running the track and need the no fluctuation in pressure.

Dodge dealership in Humble does nitrogen in the tires. For a small fee.
