Your Brake Pads and Shoes
In order to avoid wearing down your brakes, give yourself some time to brake without having to stop in an abrupt manner. Your front brakes will typically wear out faster than the rear brakes, and it’s recommended that you take your car in for a thorough brake inspection every six months. Ceramic brake pads are the latest in brake technology and produce a lot less dust, have much better stopping power, and also produce less noise. Your pads and shoes can be worn down over time, making it much more difficult to stop. Make sure you have your pads and shoes inspected thoroughly for wear and tear.
The brake rotors are an essential component of any braking system. The pads clamp down onto your brake rotor, allowing your vehicle to come to a safe stop. When this process occurs, it creates heat. The rotors dissipate the heat and allow your braking system to work correctly. If that heat is unable to escape, it can reduce your brake’s stopping power, creating a serious safety hazard. If your rotors are worn down, they should be replaced as soon as possible. From squealing noises to grinding sounds and issues with stopping, you should bring your car in for a thorough brake inspection at the first sign of trouble. The sooner we can diagnose the problem, the sooner you can get your vehicle safely back on the road so you can drive in confidence.
