Brake discs are crucial for safety. They’re responsible for bringing your vehicle to a halt, so it’s vital that they’re always working correctly. During braking, friction occurs between the brake pads and the brake disc, which reduces the speed of your vehicle and brings it to a standstill. Brake discs need to withstand high mechanical pressure, so they’re usually made from durable cast iron. Brake pads tend to be manufactured using ceramic material.

Regardless of the composition, if your brake discs become rusty, you’ll need to buy a replacement as soon as possible to return them to good working order. At Halfords, we offer a vast range of brake pads and discs for all vehicles, including Bosch, Eicher, and Pagid. Enter your registration number, and we’ll display the correct brake discs and pads for your car.

When do brake discs need replacing?

Like any car part, brake discs suffer wear and tear over time. On average, brake discs should be replaced every 25,000-30,000 miles—but they can wear faster. It’s advised to check your brake discs every 10,000 miles to ensure they’re working safely.

If your brakes appear less responsive and it takes you longer to slow down, don’t ignore them, as they’ll probably need replacing. Other signs to look out for include:

  • If your car is pulling to one side
  • Your brake pedals are pulsating, or there’s vibration through your steering wheel
  • You hear a grinding or squealing noise when you brake
  • You notice leaks on the inner wheels
  • The brake warning light is illuminated on the dashboard
  • You notice a sticking handbrake or the brake pedals sinking to the floor

Your car’s brake discs withstand a lot of pressure, which means that they can wear out over time. This can cause an annoying squealing sound or, in more worrying circumstances, feel your car pull to one side. This can occur when a brake caliper has seized or locked in position. Warping and grinding of discs can lead to a pulsating brake pedal feel, which are common signs of brake disc wear. Find out more about brake discs so you can be prepared if you need a replacement.
