When should you change the brake pads on your 1997 Chevrolet C1500? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.

How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your C1500. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Chevrolet C1500s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
