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

November 17, 2019

Your brake pads are the important parts that rub against the rotor (or disc) to slow and stop your car when driving in Westerville. 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 Westerville drivers should replace their brake pads at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Westerville. 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 Westerville service advisor to inspect your brakes. Addressing problems early will restore your safety and prevent expensive brake damage.
