How often do 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

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 300SEL. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer.
