Brake pads are one of the smaller features of a vehicle, but they play a vital role in keeping you safe in Scottsboro. It all begins as you place your foot on the brake pedal. As you put pressure on the brake, a series of events begin, starting with the cylinder sending brake fluid to the calipers behind your wheels.

These calipers apply pressure to the brake pads with pistons that push them into the rotor, eventually causing it to slow the vehicle to a stop. To make sure your brake pads are in prime condition, look for them between the caliper and rotor of your wheel behind the spokes of the rim. If there is plenty of space between the rotor and caliper, then you know your brake pads are ample enough to get the job done.

They should last anywhere from 20,000 to 65,000 miles, but this will depend on how frequently you travel.
