A Green Technology that Simply Requires a Change in Behavior
Studies from several major tire companies, including Ford and Goodyear, show that nitrogen tire inflation is a green technology by extending the life of the tire and improving fuel efficiency. Nashville-based GoNitroTire is one of the few companies in the United States to offer nitrogen tire inflation, and hybrid tires.
GoNitroTire’s solution in transportation enables the delivery of the value of nitrogen to fleet managers and consumers as an inflation medium for vehicles of every size. High purity nitrogen has been widely used in tires for decades by NASCAR and the airline industry. One part of this solution is the understanding of nitrogen’s benefits as a safe, inexpensive and easy way to maintain in a tire.
“The day has come for nitrogen tire inflation to be embraced in the public domain and we can offer the national infrastructure this service,” said Ken Lawton, founder and CEO of GoNitroTire. “We believe American businesses have the responsibility to lead by example, Nitrogen’s use in managed fleets saves money, time and is environmentally responsible.”
As an emerging green technology, nitrogen tire inflation creates Hybrid Tirestm, providing another important means towards better energy management. The objective of GoNitroTire is to be part of the solution – NOT the waste and pollution. By improving gas mileage up to six percent and extending tire wear up to 30 percent; GoNitroTire and NitroFleet99 are pioneers in products and services for nitrogen inflated tires. Our national service network provides managed fleets, both large and small, with the opportunity to convert and to maintain their vehicles easily.
GoNitroTire mandate is simple: provide a national infrastructure of nitrogen service sites, through which managed fleets of all sizes could convert and maintain their vehicle tires with the nitrogen needed to maintain their hybrid tires. is associated with the Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Coalition, a national environmental advocacy organization that supports the use of green technology.
