Driving safely relies on keeping up with brake service to make sure your vehicle is stopping on time! Here are 3 tips for keeping your brakes in tip top shape for as long as possible.

1. Easy on the Pedal

Many drivers are unaware that waiting until the last possible second to stop their vehicle behind another car, or at a stop light or sign, is specifically hazardous to their health, not just because it means they'll have less time to come to a complete stop, but also because it wears down their braking system exceptionally faster than anything a person can do. Even with regular brake service, stopping on a dime all the time can wear down other important components in your precious decelerating systems, like your brake calipers.

Give yourself at least three full car lengths of room to slowly begin applying pressure to your brakes. This will allow you to come to a complete stop without putting your brakes through unnecessary torture and sending you in for an early brake replacement.

2. Rotate Your Tires

Tire rotation used to be a much more prevalent part of every vehicle's recommended brake service schedule. Though over time, things change and even some of the best of practices can fade out of regularity. Rotating your tires is good for both your tires and your brakes; ensuring they wear down evenly and appropriately. Make tire rotation your new brake service tradition and breath extra life into both your tires and brakes.

3. Slow & Steady Take Off

Just like with careful approaches, it's also wise to relieve the pressure on your brakes more gently and consciously than the average driver. This will help maintain the integrity of your braking system and avoid any need for early brake replacement, which will save you precious time and money.
