You know your GMC K2500 better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like GMC suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

When should you change the brake pads on your 1999 GMC K2500? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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 timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your K2500. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers GMC K2500 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed GMC's standards.
