At Fisher's Tire & Service, when it comes to safety, no part of your vehicle is more important than the brake system. They should be inspected at least once
a year to determine the condition of the hydraulic system and operating hardware. While the entire braking system requires
attention, the friction components (pads, shoes, rotors and drums) require constant attention because they wear down each
time you apply your brakes.

Brakes must be replaced when the lining on your brake pad or brake shoe is worn down past the minimum thickness specified by the car manufacturer or by state law. Your brake linings can be checked at any normal service shop or at a brake specialist.
Here are Some Signs that your Brakes Need to be Checked:
- Your brake pedal becomes very soft and mushy
- Your brake pedal is very hard and resistant
- Your brake pedal rests too low or too high
- Indication or warning lights on the dashboard
- Loud and constant scraping and grinding sounds coming from the brakes
Keep in mind, squealing brakes are not always a sign of a major problem. Brakes squeal and squeak for a number of reasons, including moisture on the brake pads, discs, shoes and drums. You're likely to notice that type of squeak when it rains. You should only become concerned if the squealing becomes a scraping or grinding noise. This is a sign of metal-to-metal contact, which can permanently damage brake parts.
What are the Benefits of a Properly Maintained Braking System?
- Firm and steady pedal feel
- Peace of mind
- Consistent stopping under repeated hard braking conditions
- Even braking
- Longer brake system component and friction material life
- Smooth stopping
This summer if you notice a brake problem, it pays to have it inspected or repaired as soon as possible. The cost of a brake repair can increase dramatically if even minor problems aren't fixed in a timely manner. Not to mention the value of safety it will provide you.
