When should you change the brake pads on your 1989 GMC R2500? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.

If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your R2500. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers GMC R2500 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
