When it comes to brake service, repairs, and inspections, let the experts at Orleans Toyota help. Our clients around Cape Cod, Brewster, Dennis, Eastham, and Wellfleet need their brakes to perform at their best. As you may know, two main parts of your brakes are the brake pads and rotors. We are here to tell you more about the difference between them.

Brake Pads vs. Brake Rotors: What is the Difference?

Brake pads and rotors work together so that your vehicle can stop safely and efficiently. Your brake pads will need more attention when compared to the rotors because they are less dense. The brake rotor attaches to the steering spindle. The brake pads apply pressure to the rotors, which makes your car come to a complete stop.

Are you wondering how often you should replace your brake pads and rotors? Usually, brake pads will last about 50,000 miles, and the rotors will last about 70,000 miles. Different factors can affect these numbers. These factors include your driving habits and harsh weather conditions. If you still have any brake-related questions, please let us know.
