How Often Should Brake Pads and Rotors Be Replaced?

Two of the most common aspects we deal with during brake repairs are replacing the rotors and pads. So, how often should these vital performance parts be swapped out?

For the pads, having them replaced every 10,000 to 20,000 miles is generally a good idea. With the rotors, you can wait a bit longer, something around 50,000 to 70,000 miles. The type of vehicle you own will determine whether your pads and rotors should be replaced during the short end or long end of these estimates.

Essentially, the more you ask from your brakes, the more repairs and replacements they'll require over time. So, if you have a heavy-duty truck towing large trailers or a sports car coming to abrupt stops from great speeds, replacing the brake pads at 10,000 miles is more appropriate than waiting until you hit 20,000 miles!

Signs I Need a Brake Repair

You can look out for a few different signs that suggest your vehicle requires a brake repair. These are the most prevalent symptoms…

  • Pulling while braking: If your vehicle pulls to the left or right as you attempt to decelerate, having your brakes inspected is a good idea.
  • Squishy brake pedal: Your brake pedal should always feel firm and reassuring. If you have to floor the pedal to begin slowing down, it's a sign your brakes are wearing thin.
