How long do automotive Brake Pads last?

Generally when fitted to a motor vehicle of approximately ¾ tonnes in street use, 25000 to 35 000km´s is common. This however is very dependant on the use the vehicle has been subjected to and brake pads lasting in excess of 80000 Km is not uncommon. Factors that can reduce the life of brake pads are:

  • Weight: Overloading especially commercial applications
  • Heat: Excessive hard braking or dragging of pads.
  • Poor rotor and brake system condition.
