One simple answer would be why bother going to all the hassle of converting a tyre in the first place? A small electric compressor can be had for about fifty pounds or so nowadays. Not only would it be a lot more convenient to use and better at the job but also a lot safer. In addition it can be used for powering air tools, and inflating bicycle/car tyres, paddling pools etc.
