Since the beginning of automobile creation, drum brakes have been used due to their cost-effectiveness and even recyclability. Brake shoes work by pressing against the inner wall of the brake drum, located inside the wheel, creating friction to slow the wheel. While they do not cool as efficiently as disc brakes, drum brakes are still often found on rear wheels as they work well with your vehicle's emergency brake. Drum brakes have more parts than disc brakes, however, and can be more expensive to service. That's why our Lifetime Warranty on brake pads AND shoes is an unbeatable deal!
Disc brakes use brake pads
, which clamp together on a spinning disc (called a rotor) to slow the wheel, much like the braking mechanism on a bicycle. Unlike brake shoes, brake pads often come in a variety of materials to suit your vehicle's braking needs and driving style. Brake pads generate much less heat from stopping friction than brake shoes and tend to work better than brake shoes in wet weather. Due to this fact, many vehicles are equipped with disc brakes on the front wheels for added braking power, and sometimes even on the rear wheels. Driving on worn brake pads can wear out the calipers that initiate friction between the rotor and the brake pads, leading to a costly repair, so it is best to have your brake pads inspected and repaired sooner rather than later!
