If you wait until the last minute to replace your brakes, you could be in for a lot of trouble. Screeching, ineffective stopping, pulling, these are all symptoms that mean your brakes need to be replaced as soon as possible before they end up failing all together. The moment you feel your vehicle pull to one side or the other, or feel your vehicle begin to vibrate, you should know that you need to replace your brakes ASAP. It is highly unwise to continue driving on brakes that display these signs, as it is almost certain to cause additional, and many times expensive, damage to your vehicle. Brake pads are very inexpensive, but the potential damage caused by not replacing them dutifully is much more expensive, and much more severe.
One of the most important components of your vehicle are the brakes, as they do much more than just help you stop your vehicle they also help you keep control when driving on hazardous roads made slippery by rain, as well as freezing ice during the long and cold winter. Many people believe that slipping and sliding is all about your tires, but your brakes will play an equally large part in preventing slips and more. Despite changing your brakes consistently, you can still find damage to your vehicle and when attempting to change your brake pads yourself you may miss the additional damage. This is bad for you as it can continue to create more damage, even if you have fresh new brakes. This is precisely why you must make sure that your vehicle is in working order concerning your brake system. Thankfully, Ewald’s Auto Service Center and their team of trained professionals are there to help you out.
Brake pads are one of the more confusing parts of your brake system to replace due to the many different materials that they are made of, such as the two most common Ceramic and Metallic pads. Ceramic pads are best used in smaller cars, as they create less of the brake dust that causes squealing and slippage. However, Ceramic brake pads are not so good for heavier cars and trucks, as they tend to cause a lot of noise. Semi-Metallic brake pads have several advantages to consider when replacing your brakes, such as a better temperature fade resistance and a higher level of friction than the other ceramic type. Although the choice is entirely up to you, if you are having trouble deciding which brakes are best for you, then come to Ewald’s Auto Parts and Service Center in Milwaukee, where we will help you every step of the way.
