    You use AIR to fill an inner tube.

    True air is virtually 80% nitrogen and 20% oxygen with <1% other gases. Compressed air lines often contain water. Liquid water turning to vapour, produces a much bigger pressure change than just heating a gas. This is hardly noticable for normal driving but for racing and aircraft is can be a problem, so pure nitrogen is used as it is more predictable.

    It has nothing to do with leaking less or lack of oxygen degrading your tyres slower.

    Air, just like what you breathe. If you're thinking about paying premium to fill the tires with nitrogen, air is 80% nitrogen anyway, so save your $80.

    People with more money than sense will fill their tires (tyres) with nitrogen.

    If you're not racing, or servicing an airliner, just use plain air.

    Oxygen and nitrogen, sometimes just nitrogen.

    It's compressed air

    The air we breathe, and the compressed air normally used to inflate tyres, is mostly nitrogen anyway – 78% Nitrogen, 21% Oxygen and 1% other gases.
