Getting your brake pads replaced is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to stay safe on the road. Your brake pads are one of the main components in the braking system that enable you to slow down and/or stop your car, truck, or SUV. Over time, your brake pads wear down and get thinner and thinner until they wear straight through. On average, brake pads need to be replaced every 50,000 miles. If you allow your brakes to wear all the way down, you can do physical damage to other components of your brakes. Repairing this extensive damage will end up being more expensive and more intensive. That’s why mechanics highly recommend changing out your brake pads as needed.
