Trust Belle Tire For Your Complete Brake Care Needs!
If you’re like most people, you take it for granted that your vehicle will stop every time you press on the brake pedal. But what if it didn't? Things can and do go wrong with braking systems, so it is very important to take good care of them.
As drivers, we can impact how quickly we go through brakes. Have you ever driven with someone who doesn’t touch the brake pedal until they are almost right at the red light? We all know someone who drives like this. Well that person will wear out their brakes much more quickly than the person who is looking down the road, anticipates the light and brakes more gently to come to a stop. Take care of your brakes and they will take care of you!
When is time for new brakes?
The best way to check for brake problems is by "feeling" the brake pedal. When you're on the road, you can often sense a problem with the brakes through pedal feedback. For example, if the pedal travels too far, feels too hard or soft, or pulses, it could be warning you of worn pads and brake shoes, low fluids, or worn rotors. If you experience any of the following warning signs, you should have your brakes checked as soon as possible: Squealing or grinding, unusually soft or hard pedal feel, clicking noises while braking, or if your car pulls right or left when braking.
If you think your brakes aren't working as well as they should be, you need to get your vehicle to Belle Tire. With today's sophisticated systems, you need to be sure the people working on your car are certified to do the work. At Belle Tire, our ASE Certified Technicians will check your brake system thoroughly and perform any repairs necessary to get you back on the road safely.
When you think about it, brakes, especially anti-lock brakes, are one of the most important safety features on any car. So to make sure they’re ready to go when you’re ready to stop, you should have them checked every 8,000 to 10,000 miles. ASE Certified technicians like the ones here at Belle Tire can check brake lining wear, rotors, fluid levels, hoses, connecting hardware and more to make sure everything is working the way it should. We can also turn drums and rotors, if needed, to give them an even gripping surface for new brake shoes or pads. As for the newer ceramic and semi-metallic pads and shoes, your installing technician can tell you if they are appropriate for your particular vehicle.
