How often should you change your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. 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. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your C55 AMG right now.
