When should you change the brake pads on your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Avalanche. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Chevrolet Avalanches that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Avalanche, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Chevrolet’s standards.
