Importance of Brakes

Factory Brakes

Factory brake pads are made specifically for your make and model. Aftermarket brake pads may be made of a harder material which will result in premature wear to the rotors. Compared to factory brake pads that will not produce squeaks and squeals that aftermarket pads will have. Factory brake pads have also been tested by the manufacturer to perform best for the safety of your vehicle.

Lower-cost brake pads and rotors may be made of low-quality metal and improperly heat treated. If inferior quality components are used, they will not allow the vehicle's brakes to operate within the design criteria. Stopping distances may even increase. For example, if a vehicle is designed to go from 60mph to 0 mph in 230 feet, when low quality parts are installed that distance can increase to 280 feet or more. This could mean the difference between no accident and a serious accident.
