While the Madhus name is correct, the shop is wrong.

That Madhus Tyre Centre on JC road doesnt have Nitrogen. The other two shops Madhus Enterprises and Tyre Professionals have Nitrogen inflation.

Two more:
1. Coles road service station. 30 Rs per tyre. This is not on Coles Rd but on the way to the airport opposite the Godrej Woodsman property. Its the HP pump on the left (while driving towards BIAL) just before the Sahakar Nagar turn.
2. Shankar Enterprises, the Goodyear Dealer on BEL Rd next to More supermarket and opposite Health & Glow. No idea about the price.

Stopped going to Madhus on double Rd after they left my wheel nuts loose during alignment.

There are good number of places where we can get nirtogen filled for tires in bangalore.

But I dont think there will be any such places outside bangalore. In these conditions will it be ok to mix nitrogen with normal gas?

Absolutely. But all the advantages or what appeared to be advantages (See this thread : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...-nitrogen.html (Inflating tyres with dry nitrogen)) would be gone or will reduce depending on the amount of top-up.

Will there be difference in handling of car or smoothness if we use nitrogen gas?

If you had maintained proper tyre pressure using normal air then there should not be any improvement in handling or ride quality theoretically and any evidence to support it is only anecdotal.

If you think about it logically, there should not be. However, in the real world scenario there will be a noticeable difference. I attribute this to the fact that the the regular air machines at most pumps are badly maintained and do not necessarily fill the correct psi on each tyre. I have experienced this myself at a Shell pump, no less. On the other hand, a person who is charging you 30Rs per tyre is more likely to maintain his machine. Equal pressure in all tyres makes a big difference.
Pressure loss with nitrogen filled tyres is significantly lower than in those filled with air.

Thumbs down Nitogen a marketing gimmick

Filling Nitrogen in tyres ? I must say that you already do ,Normal air contains around 80% nitrogen so why bother about filling nitrogen in tyres. It apparently doesn't have any harm apart from the price you pay for it. If it's being offered for free at some filling-station, go ahead and fill it but if it's being sold for even 10 rupees/tyre, I would say, it's not worth the price!

Filling Nitrogen in tyres has NO apparent advantage over normal compressed air! It's a marketing gimmick, ignore it.

Nitrogen proponents say that the nature of the gas means it's less prone to leaking out over time through the pores present in rubber tires. But most air leakage in tires can be traced to poor fit around the rim of the wheel or the valve stem, rather than gas permeating the rubber.

Claims of nitrogen being more friendly to the rubber and wheels is also questionable, since most tires wear out the tread on the outside long before the inner rubber would go bad from exposure to oxygen. The same factors hold true for wheels, many of which are made from alloys, not straight steel. You're far more likely to damage a wheel from hitting a curb than see a wheel go bad from oxidation.
