The large number of different vehicle on Sydney roads means a large number of replacement parts. No two car models are the same, and no two situations are the same, which is why there are so many type of brake pad.
Some brake pads are designed for high performance racing. The life of the pad is short (you might need to replace it after every race), but the performance is smooth and reliable while the pad is new. The proved impractical for most types of daily use.
Commercial vehicles combine long term reliability with constant use. And while they may not push performance to the limit they require consistent safe and steady operation. Brake pads designed for this do not wear out quickly, and do not leave ‘dust’ on the vehicle’s mechanisms due to pad abrasion.
Standard family cars require brake pads that handle a range of applications. Whilst never used for racing family cars make regular short trips during the year and long journeys at vacation time. Brakes have to deal with continual use in traffic, and constant use on the occasional steep descent. Long term reliability under inconsistent conditions is recommended.
Foreign cars often emphasis style and prestige, even as their owners expect high performance. It is not uncommon for European cars to supply smooth operating brake pads that require regular replacement. Fixing these systems with locally designed brake pads (which actually are designed for the make and model in question) allows the vehicles to achieve the consistent and long wearing performance of locally made vehicles.
Individuals wanting to keep their cars operating in optimal condition should seek out a supplier of brake pads, Sydney.
