How often should you change your 1991 GMC C3500’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers GMC C3500 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
