The braking system is one of your vehicle’s most important safety systems as it’s designed to decelerate a vehicle within a safe distance. Made up of a combination of interactive parts, brakes function by absorbing the kinetic energy from the rotor attached to the wheel and slowing a vehicle down with the help of friction.

Slow Down or Stop Your Vehicle Safely with OEM Brakes
Most vehicles have brakes on all four wheels, operated by a hydraulic system. These may be disc type or drum type and are either mechanical, electric, or power-assisted. Designed as a safety auto part, these components enable drivers to slow down or stop at a moment's notice to avoid accidents on the road. Stepping on the brake pedal signals the brake pads to compress against the rotor attached to the wheel, decreasing the speed of a vehicle or stopping it completely. The safety of both the drivers and passengers rely heavily on the braking system, making them an indispensable part of your vehicle.
While these components are some of the most durable parts of a vehicle, the stress of daily driving takes its toll over time, which means that all car owners will eventually need to replace these components. Some of the common signs of improper functioning include screeching noises, increased stopping distances, vibrations that can be felt through the pedal, and score marks on the rotors. Car owners should inspect their braking systems at regular intervals to avoid serious accidents and costly repair problems. Test drives are also highly recommended to evaluate the system’s functionality and ensure that it’s in good shape.

Can brake rotors get damaged?
Brake rotors can crack or warp due to undergoing immense stress and extreme temperatures. The worn-out pads can start to grind onto the rotors while braking. You can also damage your rotor when you install new brake pads without bleeding or breaking them in first, which can also cause uneven pad and rotor wear and brake fade.
What causes brakes to wear out?
There are three primary causes of worn brake rotors. Sudden stops or panic brakes, especially at high speeds, result in damage from high-temperature friction. Apart from emergency braking, constantly hitting the brakes builds up the same excessive heat. Lastly, worn brake pads with exposed metals can cause direct contact to the rotors. This can warp the rotors and compromise the rest of your brake setup.
What are the symptoms of worn brake rotors and pads?
Your car is due for brake pad replacements if you start to hear grinding or squealing sounds when braking. Your rotors and pads might also be worn out once you start to have excessive vibrations as you brake or when the rotors and pads have uneven wear.
How long do brake rotors last?
Brake rotors generally last around 30,000 to 70,000 miles before fading. However, these numbers can still vary, since brake wear will depend on how you drive and how durable your current brake system is. Take note that brakes can also deteriorate faster if your car carries heavy loads more often.
How do I protect my brakes?
You can maintain your brakes by avoiding constant sudden braking or minimizing the load your car needs to carry whenever you drive. You can also opt for more durable brake rotors made from ceramic and semi-metallic materials that are much more heat resistant.
