Do I Need Brake Pads or shoes?
Stop by any Driver’s Edge location and we will quickly tell you.
To check yourself, try this:
Look thru your rim and if you see a shiny surface you probably need brake pads. The brake pads may also be visible to the naked eye without removing the tire.
If you look thru the rim and you see drum which is black or rusty than you will likely need brake shoes. The Brake Drum will not be shiny.
Brake shoes go on the inside of the brake drum, and the brake pads squeeze the shiny disc to bring to a stop.
If you need Brake Pads or Brake Shoes Driver’s edge is here to help.
