Brake Pad Replacement Cost: What To Expect And How To Save

What will a brake pad replacement cost for your vehicle, and how can you reduce these expenses? Read on to find out, or contact your local TIRECRAFT for a free quote.

How Much Will A Brake Pad Replacement Cost In 2022?

In Canada, the median brake pad replacement cost is approximately $150 per axle, or $300 total, although costs can range between $100 to $300 or more, depending on where you have your vehicle serviced. This approximate cost does include parts and labour.

If you need to replace the brake pads and rotors, expect to pay anywhere from $250 to $400 per axle on average. And if you drive a heavy truck intended for hauling and towing, or a performance vehicle with specialized carbon-ceramic rotors and high-performance brake pads, expect to pay more, often much more.

These are standard brake pad replacement costs, according to Canada’s Kelly Blue Book, but don’t worry—there are plenty of ways to lower those costs to a more acceptable price point, and your local TIRECRAFT is standing by to help you save.

How To Reduce Brake Pad Replacement Costs With TIRECRAFT

  • Give your ‘brakes a break!’ As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure—in other words, the best way to cut brake pad replacement costs is to keep your brakes in shape to begin with. To that end, we recommend drivers reduce their speed before braking, avoid “two-footing” pedals and “brake-tapping” whenever possible, and minimize the amount of and on-going hauling of heavy objects in your car.
  • Keep your brakes in shape with preventive maintenance. Most experts agree that you should bleed and flush your brakes at least every 2 years. This is even more important if you drive an older vehicle. But for the best results, annual brake services are recommended.
  • Consider less expensive replacement parts. While there are plenty of good reasons to buy high-quality brake pads and rotors, you don’t always need the best parts that money can buy, especially if you’re driving an older vehicle that’s nearing the end of its service life. Whether you’re looking for premium parts or budget-friendly options, you’ll find everything you need at your local TIRECRAFT, and our certified technicians will help you make the right choice for your vehicle.
  • Drive down brake pad replacement costs with custom loyalty rewards. By signing up for the MyTIRECRAFT Rewards program, you can earn rewards points for every service or replacement part you purchase. These points can then be spent like money to reduce brake pad replacement costs.
