What is A Front Brake Pad Replacement?

In many cases, people will change all four brake pads at the same time but in cases where you have a front-wheel-drive car, it is highly important that the front brake pads be in the best condition possible. With brake pads, there is a limit at which point they are no longer considered safe or serviceable. Generally, the thinnest that a brake pad can be and still be considered safe is 0.1 of an inch. At this point, which is normally around 50,000 miles of use, the brake pad does need to be replaced to make it safe again and to make sure that the calipers are not going to clamp directly down on the rotors. This is going to help you make sure your car is safe and that the brake pads are going to be able to create the necessary friction to stop the car when you do press on the brake pedal.

Brake Pad Replacement Interval

It is suggested that you replace your brakes once they have 50,000 miles of wear on them. This can vary depending on a few factors. If you drive a lot, if you drive in stop and go traffic and are using your brakes a great deal, or if there are some extenuating circumstances, you may need to change your brakes more often. You should be having your brake pads checked when you do have your car serviced to make sure that they are going to stop your car properly and that they are at the safe thickness. A good technician can help you determine if your brake pads are in need of replacement or if they are still thick enough that they are going to be safe. The thickness of your brake pads does affect how safe your car is and how well you are going to be able to stop when the time does come.
