When should you change the brake pads on your 1989 GMC K2500? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your K2500. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for GMC K2500s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your K2500, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass GMC’s standards.
