Choosing the right quality brake pads for your vehicle is an important decision.
You wouldn’t risk putting cheap tires on your car, so why would you risk using cheap brake pads to repair your brakes?
Above is what a cheap brake pad looks like. As you can see, the brake pad fell apart as we were removing it from the rotors which means it is a low-quality brake pad. We are very glad we made this brake pad replacement before it was too late and the brakes failed.
At 2’u’BRAKES We Only Use High-Quality Brake Pads
When it comes to choosing the right brake pads for your vehicle, you want to be sure that you do the research ahead of time to help you make an educated decision on what brake pad type, brand, and size would be best for your vehicle.
There are a few different brake pad types to choose from, those being; ceramic, metallic, and semi-metallic.
Each brake pad type is engineered to be used under specific conditions like the distance you typically travel, and the weather conditions as you drive. There are also a ton of brake pad brands to choose from, which can be a good thing but it can also be a very bad thing if you don’t do your research and choose a high-quality brake pad.
For every high-quality brake pad option, there are at least a few poor-quality brake pad options so you have to be very particular when deciding because the wrong brake pad choice can do some serious damage to your vehicle.
Cheap Brake Pads Cost You More In The Long Run
When comparing brake pad brands to use for your vehicle, you have to take into consideration more than just the type of brake pad. You also have to consider the key features of each brand, how long they last, and their quality. The last thing you want to do is to settle for a lower brand that is bad quality and have them fall apart on you, and damage your vehicle in a serious way. There are many ways that bad brake pads can damage different parts of your car, for example, bad brake pads can damage the rotors, the calipers, and the tires if not dealt with immediately.
Brake Pads Can Damage Rotors
The first thing to be affected by cheap brake pads is the rotors. If you have bad brake pads that end up crumbling, cracking, and falling apart leaving the rotor bare the pressure that is applied to the brakes is now placed directly on the rotors. This can cause the rotors to warp, crack, and eventually break completely.
Brake Pads Can Damage Calipers
Believe it or not, the calipers can also be damaged because of bad brake pads. If the brake pads wear down unevenly or crumble and leave the calipers exposed, the calipers begin grinding directly against the rotors causing direct damage to the rotors and calipers at the same time.
Brake Pads Can Damage Tires
Another unexpected thing that can be damaged because of bad brake pads is the tires. If the brake system becomes impaired because of worn/corroded pads, rotors, or calipers it can cause you to slam on your brakes, resulting in unbalanced tires and eventually quicker than normal wear and tear.
