    Yes they will. It comes with your warranty since the tires are part of that just like road hazard. Whoever says no you guys need to get to a new dealership. We must a be a nice dealership. Plus it is cheap to get that things patched. $20 max any tire store. Of course instead of asking us wouldnt it make better sense to just call? Maybe Im a little old fashioned like that.

    Different for sure. I have NEVER encountered a car brand/dealership where tires automatically have a "road hazard" warranty.
    But I don't do "luxury" high end vehicles either.

    Are you really talking Toyota here ??
    If the answer to that is yes, where in Florida are you located ?

    Nitrogen fill will not do anything for mpg, only different pressures. I'm not citing sources for that, that just me saying it, lol. Nitrogen proponents don't make such claims, at least I don't think so, and they shouldn't.

    All it has going for it is the various benefits that come from eliminating oxygen in the tires.

    That's the cost of two kits where I shop.

    LOL. When will car owners figure out that the air we breath is mostly nitrogen. Unless the tire is evacuated to vacuum before the nitrogen is pumped in the tire will not be filled with Nitrogen.

    Wrong.

    The Toyota warranty is for defects

    What with virtually all new cars not even having a spare, including both of our cars, I'm getting one of these bad boys ... full size, space saver collapsible spare tire kit - comes w/ compressor & all things necessary to get it done. Several manufacturers are including these now.

    I enjoy watching those things shrink down even more than watching them snap into full diameter shape.

    When you get new car, pretty much any new car (including Toyota), tires are warranted for defect only, by the tire manufacturer, not the car manufacturer (Toyota in this case). There's invariably a pamphlet from the tire manufacturer in the glove box, stating the details of that warranty.

    Some try to make a case for that but it is BS.

    All it REALLY has going for it is that the water vapor is eliminated.

    You mean will not be filled with 100% N2

    Now lets say a person buys a car at Costco and it is filled to 45 psi with N2. What is the fractional O2 content in the tyre ?

    Disclaimer: I could not care less about 100% N2 as a tyre gas.

    Toyota does NOT cover a screw in the tire. believe me, i found one in my flat tire this morning, on the way to a dealer appointment. Luckily I had bought a spare tire and was able to use it and make it to my appointment on time.

    I listened to a Costco tire person state that they filled tires with Nitrogen and that you could ONLY fill tires up at Costco, at which point the new tire owner said "but the air is 78% nitrogen, what's the difference?"

    She started to argue that air was oxygen, at which point I went to America's Tire.

    I'll bet in turn that I get back a paragraph of gibberish ... if anything.

    The bicycle world has tube liners that are in effect, self sealing. The good news, you keep driving with perhaps a 'click click' of the foreign object. The bad news, would the tire ever get repaired?

    Regardless, it is a clever solution.

    My costco fill usually stays pristine for about 20 minutes, the time it takes me back to Chevron, to put more air in.

    Rather than just believe you, turn to the warranty booklet that came with the car. This is 3rd gen, US, page 29:
