Choosing brake pads: how not to encounter a fake?

Brakes fail – who is to blame?

The car suddenly stopped braking! Here any driver will feel uncomfortable. Possible causes of a malfunction rush past, along with pictures from life: the “brake” is boiled or leaked; pads with discs are icy or wet; drop a wheel? Or are the brake pads you recently changed to blame?

The last reason is the most offensive, but today it is the most common reason. Undersized pads can behave unpredictably. For example, overheating a low-quality surface layer significantly reduces the coefficient of friction.

The pads are crumbling


It happens that the friction material cracks or even completely detaches from the pad base. A recent “Behind the Wheel” test showed that such cases are not at all uncommon with shopping pads. More often than other Asian brands sin this.

Such a malfunction almost certainly leads to an accident: not only does the brake pad stop braking, but also the piston of the brake cylinder, which does not meet the usual obstacle, is pushed out too much. In this case, the depressurization of the system occurs – the brakes disappear.

There is an exit


How not to come across fake pads or low quality pads? Today, when well-known world brands leave the Russian market, the problem becomes very acute. Their place is quickly taken by “almost the same” products, just fake ones.

Outwardly, only a narrow specialist who is well acquainted with all the nuances of both the products themselves and their packaging can distinguish one from the other.

The price is also difficult to navigate: in the current situation it is unpredictable. Therefore, it is reasonable for mass model owners to rely on budget products from well-known domestic suppliers. Such pads fully meet the standards, work properly and are inexpensive. Despite the fact that they are practically not fake, because scammers can take much more advantage of foreign brands.
