The brake system serves as one of the most essential safety components of your vehicle. The brake system includes linings, rotors, and brake pads. A well-maintained set of brakes should last thousands of miles, but brake pads do eventually wear down and require replacement.
Brake pads are subject to a great deal of stress. In a disc brake system, brake pads are used to squeeze a spinning disc rotor that is attached to the wheel. Brake pads use friction to convert the kinetic energy of the car to thermal energy. As a brake pad comes in contact with a rotor, it begins to transfer small amounts of friction material to the rotor. The friction of the pad against the rotor is responsible for the majority of stopping power. Our professionals have the experience and knowledge to evaluate the degree of brake pad wear and determine whether replacement is necessary.
At the first sign of trouble, it is essential to replace worn brake pads and to have the entire brake system inspected. We will provide a thorough check and perform any necessary services. You’ll be safely and confidently back on the road in no time. Contact us today to set an appointment.
