Brake Systems: What Do Brake Pads Do?


Brake pads are good for up to 36,000 miles in most cases. Some newer cars with less wear and tear may last longer. However, brake pads can last for a long time even when the protective coating has been worn down completely. The brake pad is located between the brake drum and brake shoe. As you brake, the brake shoe clamps down to slow the tire's rotation and eventually stop your car.
