Brakes slow and stop the wheels and tires on your Honda. They do it by clamping brake calipers to brake rotors and producing friction. These brake parts can't do it alone, though. The calipers need brake pads. Pads let calipers rub against the rotors to create that resistance without either part getting damaged. There are four types of brake pads. Organic brake pads are ideal for everyday driving. They're cost-effective, they produce consistent friction with very little dust, and they don't wear down rotors as fast. Ceramic brake pads last longer. They work well in various weather, they're quieter, and the dust they make doesn't stick to wheels as easily. Metallic brake pads work even better, especially at high heat. They offer a much firmer feel, and they resist brake fade. Carbon fiber brake pads deliver the best stopping power, as they're the most durable and function superiorly at the highest temperatures. Most Honda models can use most of these. However, since carbon fiber and ceramic scatter heat best, sports cars use them most often. When do you replace brake pads? Normally, every 40,000 or 50,000 miles, but it depends on how and where you drive. The best way to tell? Look for signs of brake problems. They include a lit brake warning light, damaged pad surfaces, whining brakes, and taking longer to stop. The symptoms of your brakes going bad, however, are vibration and grinding. They indicate irregular pad wear due to rotor warp and rotor damage in real time, respectively. The best way to figure out if brake pads are the cause of your problems? Do an inspection. If you need to buy new ones, get genuine Honda. Their compatibility is guaranteed. Our auto parts store has plenty in stock. Check out our selection and order online today.
