Why Perform a Brake Pads Inspection During Each Service Call?
Brake pads need to be replaced after about 50,000 miles on average due to the wear and tear of repeated driving. Some need to be replaced after 25,000 (for heavy braking), while others can last for 70,000 miles. To get a more accurate number for your car’s specific needs, consult the car’s manual.
Brake pads convert the kinetic energy of the car to thermal energy by friction. Two brake pads are contained in the brake caliper and when the brakes are hydraulically applied, the caliper clamps or squeezes the two pads together into the spinning rotor to slow/stop the vehicle.
There are numerous types of brake pads, depending on the intended use of the vehicle. Most vehicle manufacturers recommend a specific kind of brake pad for their vehicle, but compounds can be changed (by either buying a different make of pad or upgrading to a performance pad in a manufacturer’s range) according to personal tastes and driving styles.
