Kia Forte Koup Racecar Cobalt XR2 Brake Caliper and Slotted Rotor

There are myriad options when it comes to stopping your Jeep. We’ll break them down for you.

We’re all aware of what it takes to stop a car. The rotors and calipers are the All-Stars that get the most attention. They’re snazzy and easy to see. But what about the parts that go unseen, the true muscles of your brake system? Of course, we’re talking about brake pads. Without brake pads, you don’t have stopping power. And like most low-profile parts, if they go unnoticed for too long, they’ll eventually cry out for attention.

Old vs. New Brake Pad

Today’s How-To Spotlight, if you haven’t already guessed, is on brake pads. Specifically, a review of four of the more common options in the brake pad world. As with most auto parts, there are other companies out there producing pads too, but we’ve narrowed it down to these popular four.

You, of course, would never go this long without changing your brake pads. You’re far too studious and aware of your Jeep to allow this to happen. You also probably have a brand of pad that you already use and don’t need recommendations. In this case, let’s assume that your significant other is planning on purchasing new brake pads as a gift for theirĀ friend and needs some assistance in choosing the right option.

Well, you can tell them to start here. After reading through the article in detail, you (or they) should have a better understanding of some of the best options on the market. Who knows, maybe they’ll even become a lifelong fan of a certain type of brake pad.
