How often should you change your 1998 BMW 318ti’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers BMW 318ti brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your 318ti, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed BMW’s specs.
