The process starts with buying the right set of brakes. Buy good quality ones to make sure that they last long. If you buy low quality brakes, they will fade much quicker.
Do not brake too much especially when you are moving downhill. If there is a need to reduce your speed, try to do it by shifting the gear down. The less you brake in these conditions, the longer your brakes will last.
Make sure that all brake fluids are as per the requirements and change them whenever they are due. This will greatly add to the life of your brakes and they will fade late.
Pump the Brakes
Instead of flooring the brakes, pump them slowly as this will not only help in slowing down quicker but will also reduce the amount of wear and tear on the pads.
Check All Brakes
Sometimes one of the brakes is not working properly and all other brakes have to work harder in order to stop the vehicle. Make sure that this issue does not take place in your vehicle as one bad break can make a lot of issues for the remaining ones.
New Brakes Care
Treat the new brakes with care as the resin applied on the pads by the manufacturer starts to evaporate due to heat generated during the braking process. This is known as the green fade and a gas is created which forces the break lining away from the disc. The friction required for the breaking process is reduced. It is important that the brakes are treated gently for at least the first hundred miles so that they can adjust and work in an optimum manner for a long time to come.
