Looking for nitrogen and getting weighed

I am in the Dearborn area of Michigan heading west. I am 7 pounds low on my nitrogen 36CKTS 5th wheel tires (recommended psi is 110). Anyone know where I can top off? I am 40ft long plus truck, so going to car dealer won't work. I see I am not too far from Goshen, Indiana. Can I go for a fill-up at the Forest River Plant? I would also like to get my 5th wheeled weighed. Does anyone know if I can do that there?

I would just go put air in them. Or go to any tire shop and pay them to top you off with Nitrogen.

The air you breathing is 78 percent Nitrogen. IMO a gimmick to get your money.

Belle Tire has Nitrogen if you want it. But adding plain old air won't hurt a thing.
On your way south down I 75 stop at any of the 3 Pilot/Flying J truck stops (The Detroiter in Woodhaven, or the other 2 a little farther south in the Monroe area) park your rig over by the truckers and go inside and talk to them about weighing your setup. They'll help you through the whole process.

I have read the numerous posts on this debate. I decided I want Nitro. My question is can I go to Goshen to get it?

According to the web site for the one near Dearborn, you must have bought the tires there.

Uhhh, see this: a nitrogen molecule measures roughly 300 picometers while an oxygen molecule measures 292 picometers. That’s only a 2.6% difference in size. One picometer is equal to one trillionth of a meter (1 m / 1,000,000,000,000). The Nitrogen molecule is slightly bigger so therefore the marketing is that Nitrogen will not permeate the tire walls....Physics is there, common sense is not. Put good ole air in their. Air is 78 percent N anyway.
