Default Nitrogen filling. A farce?

Nitrogen filling in tyres seems to be in-thing these days. Pardon my doubt here but isn't nearly 80% of earth's atmosphere Nitrogen? So if the ordinary air that we use to inflate tyres contains 80% nitrogen, then what is the need for 100% nitrogen ( I am sure this again will not be 100%.)? Is there great deal of difference?
