yes but i got the package @ bob jane the guy will align it unlimited times for free ($100 extra will also give u lock nuts, unlimited nitrogen refills, and unlimited alignment and balancing.)

Whats the go with getting nitrogen in ur tyres?? i went past a jax tyres yesterday and saw a sign there too but are there any gains?? tyres last longer??

Nitrogen is more thermally stable. ie. hot and cold pressures don't vary much.

Nitrogen also leaks less, so you don't need to pump 'em up as often.
(mind you, I've had my tyres filled once, at purchase, over a year ago, they hold their pressure just fine).

edit: nitrogen makes up 70% of normal 'air'. but if you can get it free with a new set of tyres, why not get it.

Air contains moisture which expands when the tires get hot so you do not have a constant tire pressure, very noticable on a long highway run or a hard drive threw the hills.

Nitrogen does not, so stays at a constant pressure
