Brake pads are made out of materials that grip the brake rotor when you step on the brake pedal in your car. While they are made from exceptionally strong materials, they do wear down over time. If you have noticed that your brakes are squeaking very loudly or that they take longer to slow down your car, it might mean that they need to be replaced. Most brakes are rated to last for 50,000 miles of normal driving, though some vehicles use pads that need to be replaced every 25,000 miles.
Brake rotors are the large, flat metal discs that are a part of your brake system. Your rotors are the section of your brakes that the pads clamp down onto in order to slow your vehicle. Over time, your rotors can become warped. Warped rotors will make your vehicle shake whenever you apply the brakes, and they make stopping take longer.
