Signs You Need New Brakes
There are a few ways to tell if you need new brakes that do not require you to take the tires off the car.
If the car has disk brake, you should be able to look to see if the brake pads are worn down. Brake pads should be at least 1/4 inch thick. Look between the spoke of the wheel. If the brake pads appear to be less than 1/4 inch, call the dealership to have the brake pads replaced.
