Collection: Brake Pads and Brake Discs or Rotors

Your Brake Pads and Brake Discs "Rotor"

Brake pads are a major key part of your vehicle's brake system and should not be overlooked, they are the friction stopping your disc brake. (the part that clamps down, slowing the tires' rotation) . Without brake pads you just don’t stop unless you have an anchor to throw out but I doubt even this would be effective.If your brake pads deteriorate other elements of your vehicle, such as the discs, rotors, and calipers will begin to wear away fast.

The typical box of disc brake pads has four pads (two pads for each side of the car). Some manufacturers will normally included other pieces of hardware to make sure the pad performs to its full potential.


Unless the discs “rotors” are worn beyond the specified minimum thickness, we prefer to replace the only the pads. This obviously saves money, and time. New pads must be burnished into the new rotors before the best braking performance is achieved, this is called bedding in and is usually achieved by light braking for the first 100km and not overheating the brakes. 

Brake pads are a major part of your vehicle's braking system and you should always keep them in working condition as it is crucial for the safety of both you and other drivers around you,not to mention your lovely passengers. On average, brake pads should be replaced every 40,000 to 50,000 miles, but that number can differ depending on driving conditions and styles and also the hardness of the brake material. Keep in mind that if you use a brake pas with hard material it will wear the brake disc down faster also. As the Brake disc is a more expensive part we would advise against this practice. 


Generally, brake pads need to be replaced after about 50,000 miles. Some need to be replaced after 25,000, while others can last for 70,000 miles – it all depends on the factors listed above


Symptoms that indicate that it's time to replace your brake pads and possibly your discs, too.” When the pads wear thin,a metal-on-metal scenario occurs as the caliper or metal casing of the brake pad rubs against the disc,. ... If you wait too long, the brakes may begin to grind and destroy the disc. This will also be safety critical as brake performance will be drastically reduced if not gone all together.
