Nitro filled tires

I like having nitro in my truck tires but just purchased a flagstaff and it has nitro in the tires but there is not a place where I can get the tires checked or top off would it be better to just go back with air so I can maintain it my self?

I live in the middle of nowhere and I have a nitrogen tire guy within 30 miles and he is on the way for me to go anywhere. I also have talked to a friend that owns a machine to do this and think I can use my portable tank that is filled with pure Nitrogen with enough PSI to fill a low tire, but he stated that you should not have to worry about it but once a year maintenance. and if you trael you can find one on your way out of town or back into town. if you only make 1 trip a year then that might be different.

Don't waste the money! Unless your rig can do 150 mph for a couple of miles with a dragging brake and then retract its wheels into the body, it doesn't have any benefits.
