We maintain, repair, and replace braking systems on most vehicles. Our prices are very competitive and usually beat the chain prices. Free Estimates available. Free tire rotation with any brake repair job. We also upgrade braking systems.
Maybe it would help if we thought of a vehicle's brake system as a handling component. Auto racers, from weekend club amateurs all the way up to professionals, appreciate the value of high-performance brakes for fine-tuned handling as well as a way to maintain speed longer into each turn.
As evidence performance brakes have been track tested and the results show a driver in a vehicle with factory brakes had to hit the pedal 500 feet before a turn in order to negotiate it safely. With the performance brakes installed, the same vehicle could stay at speed an additional 300 feet. In a sport where nanoseconds can separate the winner from the losers, those extra feet are critical.
Okay, maybe our trips to the dry cleaners or commutes to work aren't judged in nanoseconds, maybe holding maximum speed longer won't make or break our day. But the ability to stop straight and true to avoid an accident is critical, especially in larger vehicles.
Pick-ups and SUVs are good candidates for a brake upgrade, because manufacturers often find themselves between a rock and hard place trying to produce vehicles buyers want at a price they're willing or able to pay. The aftermarket is strong for this very reason. Plus, the addition of a full audio/video system with drop-down screens increases the distraction ante significantly. With all these elements in play, you've got an exceptional amount of weight to slow or bring to a full stop and less time to do it, which brings to mind the concept that there's no such thing as too much brake.
