When should you change the brake pads on your 1991 GMC G1500? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for GMC G1500s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
