Hot Rods, Hot Stop

Every driver has heat to thank for their vehicle's ability to stop both in the event of an emergency as well as at every stop sign or traffic light. What could heat possibly have to do with your automobile's ability to cease moving? The metallic blocks called brake pads that are attached to your wheels rely on friction in order to perform.

Friction is the generation of heat when two object rub against one another. It ensures when we step down and push we move forward when walking. Engineers make use of this as the brake pads rub against the wheels attached to a vehicle's axle to slow its motion.

Unfortunately, as the metal pads rub against the metal wheels, they eventually wear down. In order to be sure your pads do not need to be replaced visit your trusted service technician in Westbury, NY for a professional inspection.
