Worn Brake Pad Compared To New Brake Pad

Most people don’t know what a worn brake pad looks like. Or for that matter a new one.

Here is a photo of both recently taken in our shop. On the left is a worn brake pad with about 3 millimeters of brake pad left.

On the right is a new brake pad with 10 millimeters of pad left. I never allow the brakes on my own vehicle to even get to 3 millimeters.
