Brakes grinding is a common issue that can stop you in your tracks. It’s important to know how long you can drive after braking hard and grinding the brakes. Most brake pads are designed to last about 30,00 miles before they need replaced, but it’s not uncommon for them to wear faster if you frequently apply heavy pressure on the brake pedal or live in an area with plenty of hills. When this happens, it could be time for new brakes! A brake rotor is the disc that sits behind your wheel and helps to slow it down after you hit the brakes. Brake pads sit on top of this, rubbing against its surface as they wear out over time. When a brake pad wears too thin, metal parts from the rotor are able to contact the inside of your tire. This can cause reduced braking power and make an annoying scraping sound when you apply pressure to your breaks in wet conditions. If both front or rear discs haven’t been replaced within recent years, then chances are good that one will need replacing soon due to excessive wear patterns caused by use and age – new rotors are available at most auto supply stores for under $40!
