Spare tyre as air tank

Risks of burst, and subsequent issues, out weights benefits.

But, it was (not sure if still is) a practice of off-roaders here in UAE to use the spare wheel as an inflator, many years back (as in the 80's).

There are many videos out there,mainly crazy Aussies in their outback, using the spare tyre as a air storage tank by overinflating the tyre to above 150 psi. Then they use this air to fix popouts and to air up the running tyres as required. I know the dangers of over inflating tyres in our summer weather but this is an intriguing idea.

Anyone has done any such craziness over here ?
