Best Answer

Nitrogen. nitrogen is also used in air craft tires and most shops can change your car over to nitrogen for a fee. i had my 1994 Tahoe changed to nitrogen and i noticed a difference in cornering , it felt like the side wall of the tire wasn't rolling over as much. nitrogen is more stable and denser than air so your tire pressure wont fluctuate as much as with just air.
