Understanding Brake Pads and When to Change Them

A vehicle's brake pads serve a critical function as the friction buffer between the caliper pistons and the rotor. Because of all the use that they get, it is no surprise that brake pads wear out regularly and need to be changed.

The type of brake pads that you choose for your vehicle largely depends on the type of car that you have and what your driving habits are. For example, a heavy-duty pickup truck or SUV will require a different type of pad than a general commuter sedan. You will need to be discerning with your choice if you are looking for a performance pad.
