How often should you change your 1983 GMC G1500’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

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 G1500 right now.
