Thread: brake pads

    brake pads

    Since I'm flushing the brakes system I figured I'll replace the brake pads since they have 15000 miles on them.....rotors are within tolerances, opinion as to just replacing pads? Or do I need to replace the rotors too?

    If the're not worn to a point of needing replacement or contaminated, I'm not sure why you're replacing them?

    I've always had good luck with EBC in the HH compound. Some will differ from this opinion.
