About Our Brake Service
What’s Included with Our Brake Service?

Just Tires service technicians are trained to inspect, repair, and if necessary, replace your brake system to ensure it's working efficiently and effectively.

Our service includes:

  • Replacing your worn brake pads and/or brake shoes
  • Resurfacing your brake rotors or drums
  • Replacing your brake fluid as needed
Why is a Brake Service Important?

Brakes must be inspected, fixed, or upgraded on an annual basis because they are made of materials and parts that wear out over time. If brake checks and servicing are ignored, it can lead to more costly repairs and replacements, as well as a dangerous loss of stopping capacity.

How Often Do Brakes Need to be Repaired?

It’s recommended to have your brakes checked every 12 months or 15,000 miles. Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. If any help is needed, book time with your local Just Tires today.


Looking for assistance?

  • Your brakes are continuously squeaking, squealing, or grinding
  • Your brake or anti-lock braking system (ABS) warning light comes on
  • Your car jerks or pulls to one side when braking
  • Your brake pedal feels soft or goes to the floor when pressed

If your vehicle's brake warning light illuminates, you should immediately have it tested. Low brake fluid, worn brake pads, leaking brakes, or even a defective sensor are all factors that can affect the antilock braking system and may cause the warning light to activate.

An out-of-round brake rotor or brake drum can cause shakiness, which you may be able to feel through the brake pedal. A sticking brake caliper with worn-out brake hardware may also be a contributing factor, which will create vibrations through the steering wheel while driving.

This symptom of grinding brakes usually indicates that the friction material has worn away, leaving the metal backing plate in contact with the rotor. The rotors may show wear or score marks as a result of this. Contamination of the friction material or misaligned pads due to worn-out hardware may also induce grinding. Come by your nearest Just Tires location immediately if you're feeling any grinding when braking.

Your local Just Tires location will perform brake repair services, including replacing worn brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums, and brake fluid, as needed.

Brake fluid is responsible for moving hydraulic components within a braking system. It is a non-compressible fluid that allows force from your foot to apply pressure on the brakes.

Brake fluid goes from the master cylinder (connected to the brake pedal) to the caliper or wheel cylinder at the wheels. If you’ve noticed a decrease in your stopping power, you may need to add more brake fluid. Learn more about our Brake Fluid & Flush Service.

Brake fluid is a clear liquid with a hint of yellow. If it appears dark in color, it may need to be replaced due to contamination and should be tested.

Brake pads should be replaced when there is 3 millimeters (mm) or less of friction material left, or when the wear indicator is activated.

Many factors, including environmental factors such as mountain travel, highway driving, or stop-and-go traffic, will impact the durability of a vehicle's brakes. A driver's habits will also play a role, such as coming to a full stop at a red light or adding additional force to the brake pedal when braking. Furthermore, the quality of the brake material may play a part.

Antilock brake systems (ABS) are designed to help prevent wheels from locking up, enabling the driver to make a controlled stop.

A brake caliper is the part of the brake system located at the wheel that applies pressure on the piston which, in turn, pushes the brake pad against the rotor to slow or stop the vehicle.
