The Best Tips to Have Your Brakes Last Longer

Try to speed as little as possible. Avoid braking from high speeds, and especially braking fast from a high speed as it causes more energy and heat, which wears and tears on your brakes.

Use your right foot only when using the brake pedal. Some use their right foot on the gas and left foot on the brake. If you have this habit, try using only your right foot for both pedals. Using your left foot causes unnecessary tapping on the brakes, which causes them to wear faster.

Coast away! If you have a long distance to sop, for example, a freeway exit ramp, coast to a stop rather than slamming on the brakes right away. This will put you at a lower speed before you have to apply the brakes, and then your brakes don't have to put in as much energy to stop your vehicle.

Get rid of excessive weight. The more weight you have in your car, the more work your brakes need to put in to stop your vehicle. If you're trying to loose extra weight in your car, start in your trunk or backseat. No only does the weight of your vehicle affect you brakes though, it's harder on your gas tank and tires too.
