When should you change the brake pads on your 1998 Porsche 911? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads 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 911. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Porsche 911s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your 911, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Porsche’s specs.
