When should you change the brake pads on your 1983 Jeep J10? It depends on you and your driving style. 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 J10. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Jeep J10 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your J10, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Jeep’s standards.
