Replacing your Nissan brake pads is one of those essential repairs that you can expect to make regularly over the lifetime of your vehicle. Your Nissan brake pads rub against the brake rotor, pushed by the calipers, to slow the vehicle and bring it to a stop. Each time they perform this task, your Nissan brake pads wear away just a little bit more, until finally they need to be replaced. Failure to do so in a timely fashion can result in significant damage to your rotors, perhaps even making it necessary to replace them. That is because once the Nissan brake pads wear past a certain point, the metal underneath is exposed, and when pushed into position by the calipers, that metal scratches and grooves the rotors. There are a variety of Nissan brake pad types and performance levels, with the stock style of pads being excellent for the average driver in the average circumstances. However, if you find yourself changing your Nissan brake pads more frequently than it seems that you should be, you may want to consider making an upgrade and trying out one of the higher performing types. The higher performing types of Nissan brake pads feature better heat dissipation and pads that are made of materials chosen to increase friction while slowing wear, such as those with ceramic particles. Our online catalog features Nissan brake pads that range from the standard replacements to the high performance types designed specifically for more challenging driving circumstances.
