Re: 360 spin in swift after tyre burst - Phew!!! was close!!!
I know this was a long ago but glad to walked away pretty much unscathed from it
So what is the final verdict on the tyre pressure?
I have the new Swift ZXi 2014, stock tyres: 185/65/R15 Alloys, can someone help me with what tyre pressure to maintain

Nitrogen in tires - urban myth !!
Some argue that the nitrogen molecules are larger and hence do not leak out like other gases. If that was the case consider the following :
1. First time fill the tire with Air which has 80% nitrogen and 20% other gases.
2. if a large proportion of other gasses leak out leaving nitrogen behind , you again replace the shortfall with air which is 80 % nitrogen.
3. Repeated cycles of filling air will by itself keep on increase the percentage of nitrogen in the tire and hence all tires will become 100% nitrogen over a period of time.
