When should you change the brake pads on your 1992 Alfa Romeo 164? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your 164. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Alfa Romeo 164s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 164, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Alfa Romeo’s standards.
