When should you change the brake pads on your 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Delta 88. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Oldsmobile Delta 88 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Delta 88, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Oldsmobile’s specs.
