During the life of your vehicle, you should expect to replace the brake pads and rotors at least once. How frequently you'll need brake service depends on how often you drive, where you drive, and the quality of the brake parts installed.
It's recommended you ask a service technician to check your brakes around the same time as a tire rotation - roughly every six months. Understanding the rate of wear for your specific brake system will help you plan ahead for brake pad and rotor replacement.
Other parts of your vehicle may also affect brake performance. For example, worn or damaged shocks and struts can increase your stopping distance. Bad shocks and struts cause your vehicle to nosedive when braking, leading to longer stopping distances.
Windham Tire & Auto Repair specializes in brake service. From routine maintenance to the installation of new brake parts and shocks or struts to a diagnostic and repair for automotive brake problems, we restore and maintain safe brake performance.
We serve Birmingham, AL, Chelsea, AL, Greystone, AL, and surrounding areas.
