Get the Most out of your Brake Pads
Every day people are changing their driving habits to get the most out of their vehicles, whether it be better gas mileage or better tire wear. You may not know but there are also ways to make your brakes go further as well. Brake Pads are designed to wear and eventually you will need to replace them. There are many brake pads to choose from for most vehicles, choosing the best brake pad will depend on how you intend to use them. By choosing a brake pad that is designed for the duties you will be using them for, it will ensure that your brake pads are operating as intended and will make them last much longer. We have built in a “Guided Search” sytem on our site to help you choose the perfect pad for YOUR specific use. Read more

A lot of people ask the question, when does it become necessary to switch over to a dedicated track brake pads or racing brake pads? Lets say you have attented a track day or two with your street car to see what road racing is all about..of course, now you are hooked on the adrenaline of 100+ MPH turns and the face melting G’s your car can pull under braking.
