Frequently asked questions
Most frequent questions and answers about brake services
How Often Should I Change My Brake Pads?
The general consensus is every 30,000-50,000 miles under regular circumstances. If you do a lot of driving, or live somewhere that experiences extreme weather, this number might be much lower.
Can I Replace Brake Pads and Not Rotors?
Yes, sometimes. If you have identified the failing brake system early enough, or have committed to a regular maintenance schedule, chances are the pads will just need to be replaced. However, if you have driven with worn out pads for too long, the rotor may have incurred too much damage to not be replaced.
Should I Replace All 4 Brake Pads At Once?
Yes. Generally, all 4 brake pads will have deteriorated at the same rate, so if one pad is in need of replacing, they all need replacing.
When Do I Have To Replace My Rotor?
Your rotors should be replaced every other time you replace your brake pads, or approximately 70,000 miles. However, this is not always the case as your rotors may have incurred damage from bad brake pads. If you have a noisy brake system in your vehicle, chances are that your rotors have been damaged and will need swapping out sooner than regular.
