Automotive Tips from Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Frankfort: Brake Noise

February 26, 2016

Your brake pads are the important parts that rub against the rotor (or disc) to slow and stop your car when driving in Frankfort. They eventually wear down.

When your pads are worn too much, they won’t stop your vehicle as well. When the friction material is worn away, metal parts of the pad are exposed and you’ll hear a squeal or grinding sound.

That’s when Frankfort drivers should replace their brake pads at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Frankfort. Not only will new pads restore your stopping power, but replacing them on time will prevent damage to the rotor.

If your brakes are making noise, ask your Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Frankfort service advisor to inspect your brakes. Addressing problems early will restore your safety and prevent expensive brake damage.
