But back in the late '80s when I was working for a race team, we used compressed industrial nitrogen in the tires. We also used compressed nitrogen cylinders to power the pneumatic impact guns used for tire changes, since the nitrogen cylinders could provide the high pressures (300 psi) we used to drive the guns, didn't require any electricity to run (like an air compressor), and were very easy to move around the pits.
