Brakes are key to your driving safety, but we are often asked questions about brakes feeling spongy, taking longer to stop or even grinding noises from the front or rear brakes. It is important to change brake pads when they are near their minimum thickness to avoid unexpected brake failure. Replacing your brake pads before they completely wear to the metal brake pad backing extends the life of your brake disc, saves you money in the long run and keeps you safe on the road.
