Brand

« Back to Glossary Index

Brake pads come in generic, premium, and performance brands. When you are shopping online, or in an auto parts store, you’ll probably recognize well known brands, and it is commonly known that well known brands typically produce a better-quality product. Major brands tend to last longer and provide good stopping power. Budget brands on the other hand, may perform perfectly adequate, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. You may notice less effective braking, or a reduced life, with budget brands. Our advice with brakes is to stick with well known, or performance, brands.
