How do Brake Pads Work?

Brake pads are a crucial component of vehicle control and safety systems. Without good quality brake pads installed, you and your family just aren’t safe. Brake pads slow your vehicle or bring it to a stop by applying friction to the brake rotors, which are essentially big metallic discs attached to each wheel of a vehicle, hence the term disc brakes.

Do I Need New Brake Pads?

Your vehicle may need new brake pads because as you use them, brake pads wear down and can become less effective at stopping your vehicle or even fail altogether. Worn brake pads can cause your stopping distance to become much longer than it would be with a set of new brake pads installed.
