Nitrogen eliminated the water issue so pressures can be managed in a more linear fashion as the tire temp rises. For street tires it's a waste of time and money IMHO.

Re: Tire Pressure and Balance

I am experiencing the same problem with mine. Steering wheel shakes at about 69 mph and once and a while feel that clunk in the steering wheel. Will have the dealer check out when I bring in for first oil change. Maybe a strut issue??
