The more miles that you put on your vehicle, the more wear that your brakes will experience. One of the most significant forms of brake system wear is brake pad wear. Friction created by contact with brake rotors causes the semi-metallic material of your brake pads to wear down and lose surface area. It becomes necessary to replace your brake pads once they have worn below a certain point in order to maintain proper braking ability and vehicle safety. Please continue reading this page to learn more about when to replace your brake pads, and why you should choose LaFontaine Ford of Grand Rapids for all of your brake system services in Grand Rapids, MI.
Brake pads play a pivotal role in your Ford’s braking ability. Every time that you step on your brake pedal to begin the braking process, your brake pads squeeze down onto your brake rotors, creating intense friction that forces your wheels to stop spinning. Over time, this friction will wear down brake pads, affecting their ability to make proper contact with brake rotors. This can lead to poor brake performance, putting you and others on the road at risk. We recommend that you have your brakes inspected annually or anytime you notice any signs of wear, such as squeaking sounds. If your brake pads have worn to below 4 millimeters in depth, we recommend a brake pad replacement to ensure the proper braking ability.
