When should you change the brake pads on your 2012 Ram C/V? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your C/V. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Ram C/Vs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your C/V, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Ram’s specs.
