When Do Brake Pads Need to Be Replaced?

One of the parts of a car that needs to be replaced on a regular basis is its brake pads. This is because as they are used, they are ground down until they are gone. It's important to have them replaced before they are worn away.

How do brake pads work? The pads are clamped down onto each wheel's rotor when you step on the brake pedal. The harder you press on the pedal, the more force is used by the brake pads to slow down the wheels. Brake pads are made of a soft material, so they don't damage the rotors, but as a result, they wear away themselves.
