WHEN TO BREAK IT OFF WITH YOUR BRAKES

If you are experiencing any of these 4 signs, it’s time for a new set of brakes:

  1. Excessive Wear – Brake rotors wear out over time just like most every other part in your car. We recommend you check your service records and try to recall the last time you had your brake rotors replaced or inspected. Typically, Brake rotors need to be replaced every 15,000 to 70,000 miles, but the exact amount of miles depends on your driving style, brake pads, and vehicle.
  2. Blue Color – If your rotors display a blue coloration, extreme heat that occurs from “riding the brakes” is likely to blame. You can check for blue rotors by looking behind your wheel spokes for a disc-like object, the rotor. If it appears to be blue or getting blue, take your car into Brothers for a brake inspection. It may be time to replace them. The heat that causes that blue coloration may also compromise your braking system.
  3. Screeching Noise – Screeching can occur when the braking system engages with rotors that have formed grooves with time. This is not a pleasant sound, and you will absolutely know when it happens. Brother Auto Care will replace your rotors with ease with cost-efficiency and customer service in mind.
  4. Steering Wheel Vibration – Pulsing in the brake pedal and vibration in the steering wheel when you slow could mean the rotors are in trouble. Rotors get extremely hot when you push on the break because the brake pads press on the rotors. This heat can cause the rotors to wear, warp, or show unevenness with age. When this happens, the brake pads press onto a surface that isn’t smooth, so your braking and steering won’t feel smooth either. This is the cause of a vibrating steering wheel.

Brand new brakes are just an appointment away! If you think your car needs new brakes, don’t wait around – come on into Brothers right away. Driving on worn-out brakes is dangerous.
