We are trading in our 2014 178 for a 2015 179.  The dealer talked with us about investing in Tire Bands to protect from the tire coming off the wheel during a flat.  $950 per pair.  Anyone have an opinion.

A) never heard of them

B) If you have a blowout or flat, and it's a big if, the damage on a Pod is the fender, about $75...

At the dealer in Lexington NC, was wanting to add some type of foam spray in the tire to seal it during a puncture. Cost was around $250. per tire. I passed and just keep nitrogen filed in the tires, instead of air. Any else heard of the spray I mention to the tires instead of air to inflate the tires?

Familiar with - SCAM.  Maintain Tires, brakes and bearings, drive reasonable speed.  I know you are aware Air is 78% Nitrogen, and where do you top off tire when low?

I purchased a nitrogen tank small one with regulator from an HVAC store (size that repair techs use). You might try your local HVAC store and see if they will sell to you, there are getting strick around North Carolina to sell to the public. Or if you know someone in the HVAC trade ask them to buy it for you. After initial invest the refill are about $15.00 I can get several years out of one tank. Nitrogen isn't flammable and the regulator helps in putting the right amount of air in tire.

I use a similar tank only with compressed air, I use it because it is easier to move than a hose.  Also I can control moisture of the air.  Not sold on Nitrogen for these applications.  Absolutely believe there are applications for Nitrogen.
