Have you ever spent the good part of a day in Burke, VA washing your vehicle? Shining up those wheels? There is something pleasing about riding around in a freshly cleaned vehicle. Sorry to say, the next day you look down and notice that your front wheels are all dirty again. What's with this? The brake dust from your front brake pads is wearing away from your brake lining. Anytime you step on your brake pedal, this wearing process on the brake material is what creates the friction that is necessary to stop your vehicle. In time, you will need a brake pad replacement.
As with other automotive parts that eventually wear out or break and need to be replaced, brake pad replacement is just one more thing you need to do to maintain your vehicle to keep it in good, safe running condition. If you wait too long, you run the chance of spending extra money than if you just replaced your brake pads. If your brake pads wear down too thin, the metal backing on the brake pad comes in contact with the brake rotor. Once metal hits metal, you have already damaged the rotor, and you’ve also put yourself and possibly others at risk.
