How Do I Know When My Brakes Need To Be Replaced?

One of the great things about brakes is that as long as you know what to listen and look for, they will always give you warning signs before it's too late to replace, repair, or service them. Generally speaking, brake pads should be replaced every 25,000 - 50,000 miles, but driving habits, the environment in which you drive in, the hardness of brake pads, and the materials that make up the brake rotor are all factors that can either increase or decrease the life of your brakes. 

To get a better understanding of whether or not your brakes are in proper working condition, here are a few things you should be looking/listening for:

  • Brake Pad Thickness: You should be regularly taking a look to see how thick your brake pads are. To do so, simply look between the spokes of your wheels and locate your brake pad. If it appears to be less than a ¼ inch, it’s a sign that you're due for a new set of brake pads.
  • Squealing or Scraping Noise: At the bottom of each brake pad, there are small metal hair-like bristles that make a squealing noise each time the brakes are engaged. These are designed to let you know when it's time to replace them, and they should not be ignored, as you’ll begin to damage your rotors, making the cost of repair even more expensive.
