if you are asking if pads and discs have a set change time, then they don't

pads and discs are changed as and when needed

a car that does 100,000 k's per year on freeways will have considerably less wear that one that does 20,000 in stop start traffic

is that what you are asking?

the only rule i have, is that if i change the discs (rotors) then i always put on new pads

a lot of brake places will try and get you to machine the discs when it's not necessary

again, my 2c worth

If the rotors are badly scored or you have a pulsation in the brake pedal (rotor warpage), then you're going to need them either machined or replaced. But when they need to be replaced depends on driving style, brake design, etc. I'm at 37k miles now on mine and I think I'll need new front pads around 40-45k miles. My wifes 2004 GMC Sonoma went 61k miles on the original pads, but GMC put huge pads on them with double piston calipers. My jeeps brakes look like motorcycle parts compared to her truck.

Also, when I did her fronts, I bought all good quality parts. The Bendix OEM pads, and top grade Wagner rotors. They dusted like crazy (I'd have to wash the front rims once a week as they became almost all black), constantly squealed no matter how many times I took them apart and applied anti-squeal and within 30k miles, the rotors and pads were done. This last time I put on the cheapest Advance Auto Parts (Organic Pads and cheap rotors) and they are quiet, stops great and I haven't had to wash the front rims from dusting yet. In fact it's been about 2 months now and the rims still look great.

I've known brake pads to last anywhere between 6,000 & 80,000 miles depends on how you drive & the quality of the components!!!

Just swapped red Classic X , for, Green Auto SE " Spirit " 2.5 Petrol Limited edition X still 4x4,

Generally, the brake parts designed for superior stopping will wear quickly, dust up more, and may even be noisier. But they'll stop you.

I'm at 47,000 miles, mostly in town but a good chunk highway, and I haven't had to swap out pads yet, but I think I'm getting close. I'll check at my next oil change, and I expect to see them getting close to the squeal tabs.

It's generally a good idea to machine the rotors when you swap out pads- pads and rotors wear together, and if you don't machine the rotors, the new pads will wear a bit faster as they mate to the wear pattern on the rotors.

True, except the box for the Bendix pad stated longer service life, less rotor wear and low dust
Oh well, at least the cheaper ones are working great!

I'm getting close to 70,000 miles on my original brakes. It's mostly highway driving but I've never gotten anywhere close to this kind wear out of brakes in the past. I've normally replaced pads around every 35 or 40k.

any one know the wear limit for the drum brake shoes. I have drums on the rear of my pat and the service manual doesn't give a spec it. I'm guessing some where around 1/16"

Typically 1/32" above the rivet, if they are a riveted pad, or 2/32" (1/16") above the brake pad backing plate for bonded.

45,000 miles on mine brakes still good.

My Tracker would go 75,000 miles on the fronts, and believe it or not the rears on that are still original at 175,000 miles.

I do a lot of highway driving.

I had a Buick that would eat front brakes at 12,000-15,000 miles.


You can go fast, but I can go anywhere

My Patriot's original brakes lasted 3 years and over 100,000 miles. Highway, backroad, hills, town, etc.

Lol, way to resurrect an old thread. Mine initially lasted I think maybe 30k on the back, and I replaced the fronts at maybe 35k to be safe. That was just pads, and having the rotors turned. A couple months ago, I replaced pads and rotors in all four corners at about 63k miles, but most of the pads appeared to have nearly half their life left. Just a couple days ago, I learned that rotors come with some coating these days to keep them from rusting while in the packaging, that's supposed to be washed off when they're applied. I didn't know about that, but for some reason they rusted within two weeks of installation. Got some fluid film ordered, gonna clean 'em and spray 'em soon.

I know this thread is an old one, but I would like to get more feed back. When did you first have to change your pads? did you need to turn the rotors?
