How often should you change your 2020 Ram 3500’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 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.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Ram 3500 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
