Brake Discs

Brake discs are efficient, they provide better stopping power. Most of today’s vehicles have disc brakes at all four wheels, but some basic models have disc on front axle and drum brakes on the rear.

For those who have no idea about disc brakes, let me explain the braking system in a simple way, let’s imagine that you are holding a fidget spinner with your thumb and your index finger. Now think this illustration as an disc brake assembly, where an imaginary force is acted upon the spinner and it rotates like the rotor or disc which is attached to the wheel of a motorcycle, and the U-shape created by your thumb and index finger is the caliper, the part of your finger holding the spinner are the brake pads, and the force applied to the spinner is the hydraulic force in the braking system which makes the whole thing work.

The next thing to investigate would be how often do we need to replace disc brakes? 

The answer would be: On an average disc brakes tend to last for 30,000 to 50,000 miles but if the vehicle is parked for a very long time and especially in wet weathers then some parts tends to get rusty. As we say rust on your car’s brake discs is very common, and it dries away after sometime as we drive but in the case of vehicle being left for very long time it can cause a potential cause to the car and its driver. 

➢ Now you must be thinking other than getting rusty how would you know if your car needs a new brake disc? 

When you hear a squealing or a clicking noise while applying the brake, also when it takes more time to stop the car than it used to.

If you are thinking about which disc brakes will be compatible with your particular car, you can just email us before purchasing your car part with your car’s registration no. and what are you planning to buy and we will let you know whether it is compatible or not.
