Nitrogen for tires

For any of you that use Nitrogen in your tires, how do you add to them?
Tire shop, purchase tank?

Regular ol air is already 78% nitrogen.
Fill your tires up to whatever pressure you run.
Let 22% out, and refill with air.
Keep doing this 5 or 6 times, letting only 22% of the air out and refilling.
Eventually you'll get to 100% nitrogen!!!

I fill my tires with helium and I barely know I'm towing a trailer.

If you wish to fill with Nitrogen, I suspect most tire shops should be able to accommodate you.

If you wanted to do it yourself, you can probably rent a tank, regulator, and hose.

I have actually thought of doing this. But than got to thinking that it may "float" my rig high enough that I might have issues with running under bridges and overpasses.
Alas, decided to stick with plain ol free air.

It appears the OP has discovered all he needs to know on this subject. Subsequent posts seem to be wasted effort.

I do not use nitrogen , but I always drive down to SEA level to fill my tires as I was told that the air there was denser . When I drive into the mountains my tires are always full.

Actually, as you increase in altitude the tire pressure will go up due to less atmospheric pressure.
