Your braking system is arguably the most important as it saves lives by helping to prevent serious and potentially fatal crashes. Brake Pads provide the friction which slows and stops the car during braking. Over time, this friction causes brake pads surface to wear away and the pad becomes too thin. This means that brake pads must be replaced regularly. You will know when your brake pads need replacing as you will hear a noticeable squeal when they have worn beyond a certain point.
Brake pads vary in price and quality. It is important to buy high quality brake pads from reputable brands such as Ferodo, as low quality brake pads wear out faster, making them more expensive as they need to be replaced more often. LK Performance stocks quality brake pads for almost every car in the world, including Volkswagen Golf Mk1 . High quality brake pads are quiet and wear down slowly. They are also more likely to work effectively in all weather conditions.
Good quality brake pads are a key factor in safe driving, and they must be kept in good condition. Be sure to change your old brake pads promptly and only buy quality parts.
