About Brake Pads

Brake pads are a component of disc brakes used in automotive and selected other applications. Brake Pads are steel backing plates with friction material bound to the surface that faces the disc brake rotor. When the brakes are hydraulically applied, the caliper clamps or squeezes the two Brake Pads together into the spinning rotor to slow / stop the vehicle. When a Brake Pad is heated by contact with a rotor, it transfers small amounts of friction material to the Brake Disc, turning it dull grey, and slowing the vehicle down.

Here, we do take safety seriously, Which is why we only offer the best possible Brake Pad solutions for your vehicle.

** Please Note — Many manufacturers recommend you change the Brake Discs and Brake Pads at the same time **

There are a few main benefits of changing your Brake Pads and purchasing them from us, and regular maintenance of your Brake Pads should be one of your main priorities if you want to keep your car in good condition.

  • Safety — Almost every mechanic would recommend you check both front and rear Brake Pads every year or approximately every 11,000 miles, depending what comes first. All of our Brake Pads are vigorously tested prior to leaving the factory, to ensure the highest specifications and standards are met. Safety is the most important thing to you and your fellow passengers
  • Save Money On Repairs Not only that you will be safe on the road when your brakes are functioning, but you will also save some money on costly repairs. Brake Pads and Brake Discs should be maintained to prevent other repairs which could end up costing a fortune

Frequently Bought With.

A Brake Caliper is part of the disc brake system. When you press the brake pedal, the brake fluid flows from the master cylinder to the calipers. Brake fluid then applies pressure on the piston inside the caliper, pushing the brake pads against the discs causing your vehicle to slow/stop. Cars can have either 2 or 4 calipers, You can find out this information easily, If the car has brake discs on all four tires, then it will have four calipers (2 front and 2 Rear) . If the car has two brake discs and two brake drums, then it will come with two calipers in front, and 2 brake shoes positioned at the rear. The calipers can become rusty or contaminated and start to leak brake fluid as time progresses. Brake calipers absorb a lot of heat generated from the braking system, which is understandable due to the gross amount of friction which is generated, and over time, this heat can destroy or weaken the seals inside the calipers. Caliper servicing is usually done as part of a brake service job.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Brake Caliper?

  • Abnormal squealing noise from brakes.
  • When braking, the car will pull hard left or right.
  • Braking feels soft and spongy (brake pedals are easier to push than usual, going all the way to the floor when stepped on).
  • Brake fluid is leaking (clear fluid on the driveway or on the wheels).

Our recommendation:

  • Keep up with the regular brake services as suggested by the manufacturer.
  • If you drive the car with thin brake pads or rotors, it will ruin the calipers.
  • Change the brake fluid on a regular basis (approx. every 30,000 miles).
  • If you notice a clear fluid on the tires or on your driveway and a change in the way the brake pedals feel (softer pedals), it is time to get the brake system inspected.

How to service your caliper

  • Remove and replace brake caliper and pads.
  • Inspect brake discs for wear and corrosion.
  • Inspect brake line hoses.
  • Replace brake fluid.
  • Re-check brake system for fluid leaks.
  • Bleed the brake system.
  • Torque wheels to factory specifications.
  • Check brake system performance.

Brake Discs are a component of brakes used in the automotive and selected other applications. Brake Discs are steel circular plates which connect to the wheel hub and when the brakes are applied, the vehicle slows down

There is a few things to consider when selecting your brake discs. Firstly are you looking at the correct ones ? A few major differences if you are presented with 2 different options are :

  • Diameter of the Brake Disc — our measurement are shown in mm, unless otherwise specified.
  • How many wheel studs are there ? usually there are 4 or 5
  • Is the disc you need Vented or Solid ?
