The Science of Braking

Brake pads are designed to wear down over time as they slow your vehicle time and time again. A variety of materials are used for pads, and the friction they produce as they are pushed up against the rotor serves to slow the rotation of the wheels and bring your car to a stop.

A variety of brands make pads, and you should make sure that the pads you're using meet the FMSI brake standard. Ceramic pads are designed to work under heavy loads, such as a truck towing a trailer. Semi-metallic pads are a step up from normal factory pads and will reduce the noise your brakes make. Selecting the right pad for your car is critical to its performance.
