site team reminder: Please do not engage in the nitrogen tire debate. The OP wants to know the location of where to obtain it. Not the pros and cons debate. Please stay on topic. Thank you.

To get weighed, go to any truck stop with a scale. Check CAT Scale | Network of Certified Truck Scales. for a location near you. When asked for your rig number, tell them private vehicle. Then pull around and pay. I usually weigh the truck front axle on scale pad 1, rear axle on scale pad 2 and all trailer axles on scale pad 3. I then pull into a parking spot and unhook, go back and weigh just the truck (same scale pads as before). Typically first weigh is $9-12 and any reweigh in a 24 H&R period at the same scale is $1-3.

If you are attending the factory rally, there has been a company that will weigh each individual tire for you in the past. I am not sure of cost or if they will be there this year.

You can pull the tire off and carry it into most any car dealer ship. I am sure they will be happy to help you.
When tires are filled with nitrogen there is not a vacuum pump that is connected like an ac system. It is simply letting the air out of the tires then filling with nitrogen. This adds enough to help prevent the temperature from fluxuating tire pressure but fluctuation still exsists because no one vacuums all the air from the tire in the first place.
With that being said. Put some air in it. There is already air mixed with the nitrogen fill anyway.
As info

I would also like to get my 5th wheeled weighed. Does anyone know if I can do that there?

Visit the link below and input your zip code. They will list all registered nitrogen dealers within 100 miles.

Check with fire extinguishing services.They service gas stations and the like with powder fire extinguishers. They must be checked every year and every 6 years blown off and refilled. They use Nitrogen to pressurize the cylinders. My son carries nitro tanks in his service truck to do the job on site. Some outfits have units that make their own nitro on board.with hoses long enough to reach Rv's etc.

As I recall, the cost is $60 (or was for our 5th wheel & truck) it may be more or less depending on how many wheels need to be weighed
