BRAKE PADS

BRAKE PADS What is your driving style? What type of driving do you do? The weight of your vehicle, the quality of the brake pads, and the conditions of your brake rotors. If you drive aggressively(tailgate others, hard brake at stoplights, etc.) you will use the brakes more often and wear them out quicker. If you drive in a hilly area or in constant stop and go traffic, you will use the brakes more often and wear them out quicker than normal. We do a free brake inspection, and almost all brake pads come with a built in wear indicator. So, when it makes contact, you will hear a slight screeching or scraping sound. Call us, you don’t have to come in that same day, but don’t wait too long. Running the pads too low can cause damage to your rotors.
