Do you know when it's time to change the brake pads? Have you ever been driving down the road and heard squeaking sounds coming from your wheels? Well, it may be time for new brakes for your car. Your braking system is vital to your car as it provides you with the ability to stop quickly and safely. The pads wear down quickly as they grind against the smooth rotor surface. The pads carry a lot of heat and energy when bringing your car to a stop. They usually give a warning sign before they wear out by making squeaking sounds and as the pedal needs more pressure to stop.

Your warning signs can also include shimmy from side to side when coming to a stop. If your car pulls to one side or the other, either your pads or rotors need to be changed. A brake replacement service can be performed by at your preferred auto repair shop. It is best to replace the brakes in pairs and not one at a time as this can cause uneven wear and tear on your brake system.

Your car also has a visible wear indicator. Take a look at the outside wheel and peer into the caliber. You should be able to how thick the brake pads are. If less than an inch or two, it is probably time for new pads. Sometimes during a brake replacement service, they will turn the rotors, increasing their longevity.

Anxious about a brake replacement issue? Consult our ASE Certified Technicians at Gary’s Quality Automotive for more information about brakes and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop proudly serves all the vehicle owners in Grand Island, NEWood River, NE and Doniphan, NE.

Many vehicle owners are not aware of all issues involved in a brake replacement. You can schedule an inspection of your vehicle's brakes for safe driving.
