Your brakes are an important part of what keeps you safe on the roads of Hobbs, so it’s important to keep their components in top condition. Having your vehicle’s brakes serviced by replacing your brake pads is one of the most common repairs made to address issues with braking. Since this is a common service offered by many shops (including ours, just a short drive from Seminole) you may find yourself searching online for “How much does it cost to replace brake pads?”

Luckily, the Service Experts at Tate Branch Hobbs have got you covered with a quick guide to the pricing behind replacing brake pads. Find out how much it costs typically to replace brake pads, as well as the signs it’s time for a brake pad change.

What’s the Average Cost to Replace Brake Pads?

The cost of brake pad replacement is typically calculated per-axle, and varies depending on the type of vehicle being worked on. On average, you can expect a brake-pad replacement to cost about $150 per axle, with a high and low price range of anywhere from $100 to $300 per axle.

Brake pads that are made from organic materials are typically a cheaper price, while ones made of composite metals are more expensive. The composite materials brake pads offer higher resistance to heat and friction, making up for their price.

How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

Typically, the lifespan for brake pads is about 40,000 to 50,000 miles. However, your driving habits – mainly how hard you normally brake – will certainly impact this number. If you make it a habit to brake more gently, or even coast to a stop whenever possible, your brakes will almost certainly last longer.
