Learn All About Brake Pads

Brake pads are a critical part of any vehicle's braking system. The brake pad is the element that applies pressure and friction to the car's brake rotors. It is this pressure and friction which causes the wheel to slow and eventually come to a complete stop. The vehicle will stop moving once the wheel has stopped. Because of its busy role as a friction buffer between the rotor and the caliper pistons, all brake pads will eventually begin to deteriorate and wear out.

Not all brake pads are created equal. Bigger trucks and SUVs require a specific type of brake pad designed for heavier vehicles than pads used on smaller cars. For the best advice on which brake pad is right for your vehicle and to schedule your brake pad replacement, we invite you to stop by Porsche Birmingham in Irondale, AL for professional service today.
