There are no cons...I've run nitrogen for years. The greater molecular size of N over O2 means your tires don't lose air over time, because the smaller O2 molecule aren't seeping out through the rubber over time. Racers use nitrogen, period...for a reason.
The con is cost. Air is already 78% nitrogen and I can fill up in my garage.

Yeah, but with nitrogen there's no filling up in your garage...the pressure remains stable over very long periods of time. It also ends oxidation inside the tire.

One more advantage is that nitrogen is dry. When you fill your cars tires with air you are also getting a small amount of moisture. I had one car where the alloy rims would start leaking air over time due to rust. The only solution was demounting the tire, cleaning the bead and rim seating surface, remounting and rebalancing...rather costly for a tire that was no longer new.
