A conscientious driver will know how their vehicle responds in various situations, especially important when applying the brakes. Does your vehicle stop on the proverbial dime, or do you go sliding through stop signs? You may be wondering just how often should brake rotors be replaced? And how do you know when the brake pads are too thin? Do calipers need to be replaced? These are all good questions to ask the brake professionals at your auto shop.

It is a fact that given enough time and added miles, brake pads and rotors wear out. It is important to have your brakes inspected fairly frequently, such as every oil change or tire rotation. If you wait until they are worn down too far, the safety of your vehicle will be compromised. Don’t delay scheduling an inspection of your brakes if you notice any of the problems below:

  • Grooves on the surface of the rotor: These grooves will appear when the brake pad wears out and scrapes against the rotor. If caught early enough, resurfacing of the rotors may be sufficient to keep your brakes operating efficiently.
  • Squealing, squeaking. The metallic shim that has been embedded in the brake pad will start to squeal and squeak when it has worn down too thin.
  • Grinding sounds. You are hearing the metal-on-metal contact between the discs and calipers.
  • Excessive vibrations. This will be especially noticeable as you step on the brake pedal, resulting from worn-out brake pads and rotors

How often should brake rotors be replaced, you wonder? On most vehicles under normal driving conditions, brake pads and rotors should be replaced about every 50,000 to 70,000 miles. Of course, if you do a lot of driving in extreme conditions, such as pulling heavy loads or driving consistently on mountainous terrain, the mileage interval could vary significantly.

A word of advice: Brake pads and rotors should be replaced in pairs, if not all four at once, to ensure more even stopping performance from the brakes.
