How often should you change your 1987 Ford E-350 Econoline’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your E-350 Econoline right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others.
