Front Brake Pads & Maintenance 101

Although all brake pads are designed with the same objective, basic design, and material composite, how fast they wear out is significantly influenced by the pressures and heat that they consistently handle each time the driver pushed the brake pedal. Generally speaking, front brake pads will wear faster than the rear because of the physics involved in bringing a vehicle to a stop; front brake pads, at the front axle, handling more of the vehicle’s weight when stopping. This situation generally causes the front brake pads to need replacement service faster and with more replacements over the life of a vehicle.
