Nitro tires

Not finding a posting on this subject. Turns out my new Crossroads TT has nitro filled tires. I have no experience with this type of tire. Can I add regular air to my tires or do I need to fine a place that carries nitro?

My DH has nitrogen in his camaro tires. While adding nitrogen is preferable, air is acceptable. The nitrogen is meant to last longer and give better performance. Hadn't heard of putting it in trailer tires yet. This Website may offer some answers for you.

My 2013 Crossroads Z1 came with nitrogen filled tires. So far the pressure has remained exactly at the correct pressure. This is one of the advantages of nitrogen, virtually no pressure changes due to temperature and less natural leakage. If you need to add pressure it would be best to add nitrogen but you can add air with no worries. If you add air it will degrade the positive effects of nitrogen and bring the results of air only tires. Hope this helps.
