Service Center > Brakes

When it comes to your vehicle’s brakes, it’s all about safety; your safety, your family’s safety, and the safety of anyone who climbs on board. The certified technicians at Lloyd’s Tire & Auto know brake systems inside and out, and we offer free brake inspections on most vehicles.

Signs of brake wear and components that can affect your brake system include:

  • Vibration or squeaking.
  • Steering wheel shaking when driving on highways.
  • Parking Brake: Brakes may need to be replaced if a pull-up parking brake lifts all the way up, or a floorboard parking brake pushes all the way down.
  • Brake Fluid: Often neglected and should be flushed every 30K miles.
  • Brake Pads: Pads are gauged in millimeters and should be changed at 2 to 3 mm.
