Signs You Need New Brakes
Your vehicle’s braking system will let you know when it’s time for an upgrade. A sudden loss of brake response or unpleasant sounds coming from wheels are common signs you should book a service appointment with us in our Orlando brake shop. If any of the following applies to you, reach out to our professionals for assistance:
- Your brakes squeak with each pedal press.
- The brake pedal rattles or vibrates when activated.
- You can hear grinding sounds while slowing down.
- Your car pulls to one side when braking.
- The brake pads appear less than 1/4 inch in thickness.
- The vehicle takes longer than normal to come to a complete stop.
Brake Pad Replacement Services Near You
In a disc brake assembly, brake pads are responsible for pressing against the rotors to stop a vehicle. These durable components sit inside calipers and help drivers control navigation speeds through friction. Over time and through use, the brake pads wear away, so Irish Mike’s Total Car Care will recommend and install high-quality replacements for vehicles of all ages.
The process for replacing brake pads involves lifting your vehicle and taking the wheel assemblies apart. Our mechanics have the heavy-duty equipment to complete tasks safely, and Irish Mike’s connects you to name-brand braking products for all-weather performance.
Brake Rotor Replacement Services
Brake rotors are the large metal discs seen inside your vehicle’s brake assembly. These surfaces play an important role in slowing your vehicle by turning kinetic energy (momentum) into thermal energy (heat). Brake rotors are under constant stress thanks to the amount of friction required to bring wheels to a complete stop.
OEM brake rotors should last for thousands of miles, but poor road conditions, riding the brake and deteriorating pads can cause these components to warp. Irish Mike’s affordable brake services in Orlando include changing out rotors for performance improvements. One of our staff members will gather information about your make and model to suggest rotor replacements consisting of cast iron, aluminum or steel for optimal results.
From drilled and slotted rotors for performance vehicles to blank styles for daily driving, Irish Mike’s has you covered.
