If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.

Signs of brake problems include weird noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your GMC R3500 best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like GMC generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

Replacing Your GMC R3500’s Brake Pads

When should you change the brake pads on your 1990 GMC R3500? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads 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 R3500. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get GMC R3500 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed GMC's standards.
