Two tips to make your brake pads and rotors last longer:
- Anticipate upcoming stops, and slow down as you approach a stop sign or stoplight. Speeding up to a light and slamming on the brakes will wear your brake pads prematurely and can heat and warp the rotors. Another benefit is increased gas mileage!
- Keep your foot off the brake pedal, until you need to stop. “Riding the brake” will wear the brake pads and increase heat on the caliper and rotor. Warping of the rotor may be the result, especially if there is wet weather.
