Brakes


After 30 years of experience in repairing brakes for all different kinds of vehicles we here at Salinas Tires never settle for anything but the best. Don’t believe us? All of our brake repairs include a one year warranty!

Rotor Repair


A new Rotor may not only expensive, but depending on the make of your car some can be very tricky to find! Resurfacing/repairing a rotor is often your best bet.

All of our brake repairs include rotor repair. You can see the difference down below.

Knowing when to change Brakes


  1. Inspect your brakes – the brake pads should be at least 1/4inch thick
  2. Inspect your rotor – you shouldn’t see many grooves on the face of the rotor
  3. Use your ears – if you hear grinding noises as you hit the brakes, then you should take it to a mechanic immediately
  4. Observe any other unusual behavior as you hit the brakes – for example the car may begin swerving or vibrating as a result of bad brakes

As a general rule of thumb, brakes should be replaced every 50,000 miles, though some may only last half of that depending on driving habits.

A note on Brake repair


Years of experience in repairing brakes has taught us one thing: Replacing your brake pads without resurfacing your rotor is a bad idea. While we do offer a simple brake pad installation service, we highly suggest that it not be done without the rotor repair (especially not more than once!). Many shops, including ours, do not offer any warranties on a brake job that does not include rotor resurfacing, as a bad rotor will destroy new brake pads rather quickly.
