My TV tires are nitrogen filled. I think that the jury's still out on the actual benefit, BUT I haven't heard any down sides to it. Nitrogen is supposed to require less maintenance, and reduced moisture in the tire. Low inflation and moisture are killers of tires, so I can't see a reason why NOT to do it.

Will you be refilling with Nitrogen? Where would you get it? Thanks.

If you have a leak or have to plug your tire, where do you top the off? Can you carry some with you or have to pull in a tire store? If my tmps goes off going down the road can I top off with air from my air compressor Until I find a place that sells it?

I use 78.09% Nitrogen in my tires, seems to work very well. It's also free.

I bought my tires from Costco. The Nitrogen seems to be working as I have not lost pressure. With Costco you can go and get them checked and filled if needed.

Yeah, I have tried to sell my special Nitrogen blend but so far no takers

On a serious note: Tire pressure is important. If you use pure Nitrogen or normal air (78% nitrogen) the fact remains that the pressure is the important thing. So having access to pure nitrogen when you need it is an important consideration.
