Brake pads are an important part of the braking system and the part that needs to be replaced most frequently.

What Are Brake Pads?

Brake pads are a metallic piece located on each side of the spinning brake discs. When the driver presses down on the brake pedal the brake pads are pressed into the discs by the brake calipers causing the vehicle to come to a complete stop.

Why Is Brake Pad Maintenance Important?

​It is important to change out brake pads every 50 thousand miles or so depending on the frequency of use. It is also a good idea to switch out the brake discs at the same time as the pads.
