I use nitrogen instead of compressed air for a lot of applications for
various reasons, usually to prevent or control the adverse effects of
oxygen and it is generally more steady in impurities and humidity
etc......it seems like serious overkill for passenger car tires......do
race cars or planes use nitrogen in tires?

The last time I got tires, the local tire store offered a Nitrogen
fill for $5/tire, guaranteed for the life of the tire. You had to
go back to them for refills, and there may have been other
conditions (like having them check the tire pressure every x
weeks). I politely passed on it, since I knew I'd need air while
away from their store.
