Your brakes are the only thing standing between you stopping your vehicle and colliding with another object or vehicle. When you press the brake pedal, this complex system uses hydraulics to bring thousands of pounds of steel, rubber, and glass to a halt. When your brakes work properly, you may never think twice about their performance. However, if you notice out-of-the-ordinary performance, strange sounds, or anything awry, it’s vital to seek professional brake repair and service. And Wheeland’s Auto and Truck Services makes brake repair & service as easy as possible. Contact us today to learn more about our brake repair & service solutions.
At Wheeland’s Auto and Truck Services, every brake repair and service starts with a comprehensive inspection. We will carefully examine your brakes to pinpoint problems and identify any additional wear and tear. The inspection allows us to assess the overall condition of your brakes. Afterward, we will discuss our findings with you, discuss the severity of any issues, and explain our suggestions.
Every manufacturer may have different suggestions as to how often you should schedule a brake inspection. The consensus is you should have a brake inspection every 10,000 to 12,000 miles or once a year. However, if you notice any of the following signs of brake distress, schedule a brake inspection immediately:
The most common brake repair & service we perform at Wheeland’s Auto and Truck Services is brake pad replacement. Your brake pads are made of a friction material attached to a sturdy steel backing plate. Every time you press the brake pedal, the friction material clamps down against the outer and inner services of your steel brake rotor to generate massive amounts of heat and pressure, which brings your vehicle to a stop. Over time, the friction material wears away, and you must have brake pad replacement.

There are many signs and indications you need brake pad replacement, including:
Absolutely, brake pad replacement is a critical concern. If you notice any of these signs, replace your brake pads as soon as possible. Failure to do so can create a dangerous and unsafe situation. Worn-out brake pads will increase your stopping distance, causing you to underestimate the time you need to stop. And if you continue driving on worn brake pads, it will lead to a grinding, metal-on-metal sound, which is when your friction material is completely gone. This causes the metal brake pad backing to rub against your rotor, which can lead to significantly more expensive brake repair & service. Instead, the best solution is to schedule a brake inspection when you notice any signs of wear.
