When it comes to brake service and inspections, we here at Prime Toyota Route 2 are experts. Our clients throughout Lancaster, Leominster, Fitchburg, and Acton need their brakes performing at their best. Two key components of your brakes are the pads and rotors. We're here to tell you more about the difference between them.

Brake Pads vs. Brake Rotors: What is the Difference?

Brake pads and rotors work together to make your Toyota Sequoia or Tacoma come to a stop. Your brake pads will need more attention because they are less dense than rotors. The brake rotor attaches to the steering spindle. When the pads apply pressure to the rotors, your vehicle will stop.

You may be wondering how often you will have to replace these components. Usually, brake pads will last about 50,000 miles, and the rotors will last about 70,000 miles. Different factors can affect these numbers, such as your driving habits and weather conditions. As always, we are here to answer any brake-related questions you may have.
