Brake Inspections and Repairs
Your vehicle's brake system is vital to your on-road safety and because brake pads and brake rotors are classified as wear items, they must be routinely serviced. An effective brake system should be clean, adjusted correctly and not be too worn. A brake inspection, repair or replacement at your nearest Tire-Rama will keep them in good working order.
When Should You Schedule a Brake Service?
Typically, vehicle manufacturer's will recommend that you have your brakes inspected every 10,000 miles. For recommendations specific to the make and model of your vehicle, have a look in the owner's manual.
When you schedule a brake service at Tire-Rama, our ASE-certified technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your brake system, including the brake pads, shoes, rotors and brake fluid. Our brake services include:
- Disc and drum machining
- Brake pad changing
- Shoe replacement for drums
- Brake fluid changing and bleeding
- Caliper overhauls
- Steering and Suspension (includes ball joint replacement, inner/outer tie rod replacement, shocks replacement, struts replacement, suspension inspection, sway bar link replacement)
When needed, we will service or replace the different components of your vehicle's brake system to ensure it is in good working order.
Symptoms Your Brake System Needs an Inspection
There may be other times when your vehicle requires a brake service outside the recommended intervals. The following symptoms may be an indication that your brake system is in need of a repair or replacement:
- Grinding or squealing noises when applying the brakes

- Brake pedal feels either soft or hard
