Your vehicle braking system is of principal safety importance. Regular inspection and maintenance of your brakes is therefore essential and Tyre Pros are here to help every step of the way. Our fully trained technicians are committed to maintaining your brakes in an expert and cost effective manner.
Maintaining your braking system is a priority as you never know when you may need to stop in an emergency. Remember your brakes are in use more often when driving around town than on a motorway so regular maintenance is important.
So if you need your brakes checked, Tyre Pros carry out a free comprehensive brake inspection that can determine the condition of your brake components and when any of these are likely to need replacing.
What do I need to know about brakes?
The braking system is designed to slow and stop your vehicle and allow you to make an emergency stop if you need to. It is also a legal requirement that your braking system performs as intended as this is tested during the MOT Test. Therefore ensuring your brakes are operating at an optimum level is a priority.
Like all components, brakes and indeed braking performance deteriorate over time and because it happens gradually many people do not notice the difference in their braking system. Having your brakes regularly checked could save you time and money by preventing damage to other components.
What are the signs that my brakes need attention?
There are a number of tell-tale signs to look out for when using your brakes, these include:
- Grinding noise when you apply the brakes
- Pulling to the left or right
- Continuous ‘pulsating’ from the pedal or a ‘spongy’ feeling when applying the brakes
If you notice any of these signs, for safety’s sake it’s important to have your vehicle inspected as quickly as possible. You can drive in to any of our Tyre Pros centres, no appointment necessary and our trained technicians will be more than happy to carry out a free inspection.
