Question How often do you check the presure in your Nitrogen filled Run Flats?

I'm new to Nitrogen filled tires. I'm new to driving on Run Flat Tires. How often should I check the presures? Should I use my standard tire gauge?

Are your valvecaps green or some other special type? My car was not delivered with nitrogen.

The TPMS sensors are fairly sensitive so I wouldn't bother checking them until you see a light.

They are white with an "N" on them. My last car, a CTS, actually gave you the presures in each tire, which was helpful. Run Flats are so pricey I want to take care of them.

Still check mine once a week. Probably less than I should, but I am anal like that.
