When should I change my brakes?

Your car has disc brake pads in the front and in the rear either disc brake pads or brake shoes. For disc brake pads we recommend to change them between 2-3 mm, and if they're shoes then around 2mm. Your disc brake pads start around 10mm and brake shoes start at 5-6mm. Your brake pads will wear much quicker than the brake shoes. 

GIve us a call and we will do a free brake inspection for you.
