If we were to ask you what the most important component in your car in terms of safety was, what would your answer be? Is it the brakes? Not surprised. We all rely on our brakes to work the way they are supposed to every time that we get behind the wheel. The best way to ensure that happens is with timely brakes service and brake repair at the first sign of trouble.
Brake pads wear out over time. It is just a fact of life. Knowing when to have your brake pads replaced will keep you from experiencing significant damage and potentially dangerous situations when they wear out.
The general guideline for replacing brake pads is every 40,000 to 50,000 miles. However, that varies based on your vehicle, driving habits, and the type of brake pads you have, all of which affect how long it takes for your brake pads to wear out. The best thing to do if you are unsure is to consult with the ASE-Certified brake experts here at Cookeville Tire & Auto.
If you wait too long to replace your brake pads, they will let you know. Come into our shop right away if you are experiencing any of these signs of brake issues.
