You do realize that air is 78% Nitrogen to begin with, right? It contains 21% Oxygen and 1% trace gases of which most is Argon.

Also, since the molecular weights of Nitrogen and Oxygen are very similar, filling a tire with air is only 2.5% denser than filling a tire with pure Nitrogen.

Basically, it makes no difference.
Yeah... But it goes to 11....
