There's nothing wrong with mixing air with nitrogen in nitrogen filled tires because the air is already made of around 80% nitrogen anyway.

So if you have nitrogen filled tires and the tire loses some nitrogen then you can safely add some air to the nitrogen filled tires without damaging the tires or harming the nitrogen.

You can either add more nitrogen to the tires or just pump the tires up with some additional air even if they're nitrogen filled.
