TYRE F.A.Q

When asking for price quotes from Arrow Tyres, remember to indicate the tyre width, profile and rim size for an accurate quote. Tyre Width is in (mm) millimeters. Rim Size is in inches.
The Aspect Ratio (AR)of a tyre is defined as the width of the tyre divided by its height, expressed as a percentage %. (Refer to the diagram on the left)

Aspect Ratio (AR) % = (Tyre Width) / (Tyre Height)

Generally, low aspect ratio tyres are wider and have stiffer sidewalls. Plus, they make your ride look sportier.

The Load Index of a tyre corresponds to the maximum load, in kilograms or pounds, that a tyre can safely support when properly inflated.
i.e. If a tyre has a load index of 97, it can safely support up to 730 kg/tyre (refer to chart above). Multiply the figure by 4: 730 kg x 4 = 2,920 kg, and you obtain the vehicle’s maximum load capacity.
Ideally, tyre rotation should be done every 10,000 km mileage.
P.S. Do you know that Arrow Tyres provides FREE ROTATION (for the lifespan of the tyres) to all customers who purchase tyres? What’s more, it’s FREE for the lifespan of the tyres!
BATTERY F.A.Q

Amaron uses a unique Silven X alloy system and big vents that greatly reduces electrolyte loss (in the form of water). It eliminates frequent top up of water, which is generally required by other brands of batteries.
When removing the old battery, disconnect the cable at negative terminal first, then the positive terminal. After replacing with the new battery, connect the cable with positive terminal first, then the negative terminal.
CCA is acronym for “Cold Cranking Amps”. It is a rating used in the industry to define a battery’s ability to start an engine in cold temperatures. The rating is the number of amps a new, fully charged battery can deliver at 0 degree Fahrenheit for 30 seconds, while maintaining a voltage of at least 7.2 volts (for a 12 volt battery). The higher the CCA rating of a battery, the greater the starting power of the battery.
RC is acronym for “Reserve Capacity”. It is a rating used in the industry to define a battery’s ability to power a vehicle without an alternator in operation. The rating is the number of minutes a battery, at 80 degrees Fahrenheit, can be discharged at 25 amps and maintain a voltage of 10.5 volts for a 12 volt battery. The higher the reserve rating, the longer your vehicle can operate when the alternator is inactive.
