Brake Repair Services at Tires Plus
Unfamiliar and unpleasant odors are not natural and can lead to serious repercussions if you continue to drive in these dangerous conditions. The brake examination at Tires Plus is your best bet for determining whether a portion of your braking system has been affected while driving with this foul odor.
When completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, for example, rotors begin to distort and become damaged, limiting the life of other working parts owing to metal grinding. The pedal or your steering wheel vibrates and pulses. If this sounds familiar, your brake system is trying to warn you about something.
If you're pressing down harder than normal on your brake pedal to stop your car, taking more effort and time to accomplish the same task, you've reached the first stage of brake pad wear. Don't fiddle with your brake pedal; you can only press it so far before you find yourself in the terrifying "I have no brakes" situation.
The following are examples of typical braking problems:
- Fluid leak in the brakes
- The brake pedal is pushed all the way down to the ground
- Brake fluid level is low
- The steering wheel is swaying
- Brakes that grate or make noise

What Can Tire Plus Brake Service Do for You?
Brakes are, without a doubt, an important component of your car. Your automobile won't be able to stop in time if its brakes aren't working. This can result in anything from a minor fender bender to a serious collision, and neither is worth the risk.
Regular brake maintenance ensures that your brakes engage every time you apply pressure to the pedal. Since brake pads are supposed to deteriorate over time, waiting too long to get them repaired might cost you a lot of money. As your brake pads wear down, they place more strain on other parts of the brake system, such as the calipers, drums, and rotors. If any of these components are destroyed, your cost will almost certainly increase by hundreds of dollars.
Most people are unaware of the need for routine brake maintenance and are forced to make significant financial sacrifices in the aftermath of a disaster. Therefore, it's critical to have your brakes inspected on a regular basis by a professional. If you leave the service place with worn brakes, it's likely you won't have them checked again until it's too late.
Tire Plus offers a wide range of services for brake repair and maintenance. Bring you vehicle down to our shop today and we’ll take a look at it for you.
