What’s the Average Cost to Replace Brake Pads?

How much to replace brake pads? Generally, you’ll expect to pay $150 per axle for brake pad replacement. Still, the overall range is $100 to $300 per axle based on what kind of brake pads you get. Brake pads at a lower price range are made of organic materials like ceramics while the more expensive ones use technologically advanced composite materials. Even though they’re more expensive, the composite brake pads have greater heat resistance and less brake fade during routine driving in Villa Rica.

Brakes vs. Brake Pads: What’s the Difference?

People often use the terms “brakes” and “brake pads” interchangeably. However, you should know that there’s a difference between the two.

  • “Brakes” refer to the brake system as a whole. This includes brake pads, but also rotors, discs, and other components.
  • “Brake pads” are just one part of “brakes.” They apply pressure to the brake rotors or discs to bring the vehicle to a stop.

How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

In general, brake pads will last you 40,000 to 50,000 miles. Your driving habits can lengthen or shorten the lifespan of your brake pads. For example, if you like to hit the brakes for a short stop, especially if you’re hauling something, you’re adding strain to the brake pads. If you coast to a stop slowly, you’ll put less strain on them.
