What is the rationale for filling car tyres with nitrogen?

Good point.  They at least like warm tires.

Conducting heat away from the brakes is another issue though.

If one is wanting to conduct heat from the tire to the rim, what about adding a layer of aluminum foil to the inner surface of the tires.
