Brake Pads Buyer’s Guide

What is a Brake Pad?

Brake pads are the main components of your car’s braking system. They stop the movement of your vehicle by applying friction to the rotating brake rotors, effectively slowing them down. Because they work by changing mechanical energy to thermal energy, brake components are supposed to withstand a tremendous amount of heat, which can sometimes reach 1000 degrees Fahrenheit but usually only goes up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit in everyday use. Brake pads are typically made of various metals and synthetic materials that make them highly resistant to thermal damage.

How Much Does a Brake Pad Set Cost?

Brake pad sets can cost anywhere between $8 and $230, depending on your vehicle’s make and model. They may be bundled with brake rotors and are sold in sets of two or four.

Although there are many formula variations, friction compounds can be broken down into 3 basic classifications: non-asbestos organic (NAO), semi-metallic, and ceramic. NAO pads are constructed from a combination of organic fibers. In general, NAO pads are gentle on rotors and provide quiet operation, but they wear faster than other types and do not perform well at high temperatures. Semi-metallic pads contain a mix of steel, iron, copper and other inorganic fibers. They provide excellent high temperature performance and fade resistance, but at the expense of more noise and rotor wear, and brake dust creation.

Ceramic pads are a type of NAO pad, but contain ceramic and copper fibers that enable them to work well at high temperatures, with less fade, but at the same time operate quietly and create less rotor wear and brake dust. Look over our selection of brake pads and you’ll see we’ve assembled a wide variety of compounds, so you can get the pads that best suit your wallet, your vehicle, and the way you drive. Whether you’re looking for affordability, long pad life, the best pads for severe duties like towing or hauling, or the least brake dust to preserve your wheels, we have the brake pads you need.

But the brake pads are only part of a complete repair. Quite often noise and uneven pad wear are not the fault of the pads but caused by worn hardware. Parts like clips, springs and shims ensure that brake pads function properly, quietly, and wear evenly. We offer pad sets that come with hardware, as well as individual hardware components and hardware kits that will help you get the job done right so you get the best performance and longest life from your brake pads. In most cases you have to remove these parts to install the pads anyway – install new hardware and get the most benefit from your time and money.

Your vehicle’s brake pads will inevitably wear out over time. When this happens, they’ll provide less stopping power than new ones and compromise your safety, so replace them right away.
