Just wondering how far you guys have went on a set of brake pads. I rotated my tires today here in the garage and noticed the wear sensor is about to make contact with the rotor. I probably have another 3-4,000 miles before I need to change them. I have appx. 45k miles on this set of stock GM pads (front and back). I Changed them last at 45,000 miles, now have almost 91k on the car. I do mostly highway driving (75%). I know there was a thread about brakes a little while ago. Anything noticibly better than what I got from GMPartsdirect. These stock pads have virtually no dust and are quiet. looking for the same.

thanks

i think you have gotten lucky getting that many miles out of your brake pads. but i change mine out every 18 months or so, due to a lot of city and highway driving.

I was about 55,000 miles on the front and 60,000 on the rear. Mixture city/highway (more highway).

Changed my stock pads finally at 95,000 miles. Mostly highway driving. Now have Hawk HPS pads on 14" brembos. Love them!

Changed my brake pads at 141,000 miles; 25% left on pads, rotors needed slight resurfacing. My car is driven 100 miles daily.

I would venture to say, really depends on the type of driving you do...but a good/decent rule of thumb is 40k on a set. I usually change mine at that, but I'm tryin to squeeze mine out...I have 51k on mine, and I'm not sure if the dealer serviced them before I bought it. I'd say it's probably a no....

But that's just my opinion really...and it does depend really on the type of driving you do...

If you're hard on them.....then yea..they're gonna go quicker......

I got 55,000 km's (about 30,000 miles) out of my first set, and that includes a good mix of highway/city and Im very hard on the car.
