Brake Pads: Buying Guide and FAQ
What are Brake Pads?
Critical parts of the brake calipers in your vehicle's disc brake system. They're the textured surfaces on top of them.
What Do Brake Pads Do?
Help produce the resistance that slows down the vehicle's wheels and stops its tires. They do it by generating friction as the calipers contact the brake rotors.
What Types of Brake Pads are There?
- Organic brake pads: these are dependable, easy on rotors, and inexpensive, plus they don't produce much dust. This makes them ideal for everyday driving.
- Ceramic brake pads: these are ruggeder, you can rely on them in all kinds of weather, and they're quieter. Moreover, their dust isn't as sticky on wheels.
- Metallic/semi-metallic brake pads: these feel firmer, they work better at high heat, and they stand up to brake fade.
- Carbon fiber brake pads: these are the ideal combo of ultrahigh-strength and superior at high temperatures. As such, they deliver the ultimate in stopping power.
When Do You Change Brake Pads?
At 40,000-to-50,000-mile intervals, most often. It depends on how you drive and where, though.
What are the Signs Brake Pads May be Going Bad?
- Warning lights on the dashboard
- Damaged or worn-out pads
- Whining or vibrating brakes
- Taking longer to slow down and stop
- Grinding noises
- Warped and/or damaged rotors
