We used air in tyres for 70 years, and nitrogen for what, maybe 2 years, and you're telling us that air is no good for your rims. I'm sorry, but I never heard of a rim that buckled or broke because air was used insead of nitrogen.
nitrogen does not make the tyres last longer, it makes the temperature inside them more consistent and less prone to inflation due to heat build up. At best, you may get an extra 5000 km using nitrogen, but I could probably get the same by having regular wheel alignments, and using air to inflate my tyres..
