When it comes to maintenance items on our vehicle, one of the most important components to look out for is the brake pads. Having high quality brake pads can save you an accident and should be replaced regularly. Unfortunately, buying brake pads can be cumbersome and tedious as there are hundreds of options available on the market, covering a wide range of prices.

When to change brake pads.
As we said, brake pads are extremely important when it comes to the safety of your vehicle. They are a key component to effectively and quickly decelerating your vehicle, and you will probably know when it is time to replace your brake pads because braking performance will decrease markedly.
Unfortunately, there are no predefined periods of time when your brake pads need to be replaced, as this naturally depends on the operating mode and driving style, as well as the type of brake pads. However, as a rule, most companies recommend a replacement within two years.
We’ve handpicked the best brake pads on the market for 2020, and detailed specifications here and here. Although most of them are not cheap, they will be the guarantor of our safety. In addition, the better the pad, the longer the brake disc will last. And the price of a brake disc clearly does not correspond to the price of even the most expensive set of pads.
NRS Brakes Galvanized Brake Pads, front.
It seems like an obvious thing, but galvanized steel
What is galvanization and why is it important for brakes? Galvanizing is a process that covers all steel with zinc to combat corrosion. Modern brake pads, especially in the aftermarket, tend to be painted or not finished at all. Since water and dust can easily penetrate the pads, this leads to premature wear and may even lead to complete delamination when the friction pad is detached from the backing plate.
NRS Brakes galvanized steel ensures that the steel does not wear out and gives the friction pad the ability to fully wear, making it the most durable brake pad on the market. NRS Brakes uses the patented SHARK-Metal technology to mechanically attach the friction pad to the plate instead of simple glue.
The benefit is twofold: Canadian NRS pads can outlast traditional models and offer quieter performance and improved braking performance. What’s more, the company tests all of its pads outside of the manufacturer’s standards.
Brembo Brake Pads.
