At Virginia Tire & Auto of Chantilly, we offer a FREE visual brake inspection* that includes measuring the brake pads/shoes and a brake fluid test. If your brakes need service or repairs, our expert technicians are equipped to perform any brake repair, including installing new brake pads and resurfacing or replacing the rotors. Your safety is our No. 1 priority!

Types of Brake Service & Repair

Your vehicle’s brakes use a hydraulic system to multiply the force of your foot on the brake pedal into enough force to stop the car. Depending on the model of your car, you will either have a disc or drum braking system.

A disc braking system squeezes the brake pads against the brake disc (rotor) to stop the car. If your car has drum brakes, it uses brake shoes to push out against a brake drum and stop the car. Modern cars usually have disc brakes on both axles or have disc brakes on the front axle and drum brakes on the rear.

Here are the three main types of brake service you’ll see on your brake estimate:

1. Brake Pad Replacement

Squealing brakes? That most likely means that it’s time to replace your brake pads/shoes. Brake pads usually need replaced every 30,000–70,000 miles. If you let them wear down too much, they will damage your rotors. To prevent uneven, premature wear on your new brake pads, we recommend resurfacing or replacing the rotors every time you get new pads.

2. Rotor Resurfacing

To resurface brake rotors, our technician will grind down the rotor until it is smooth and even. This prevents noise and vibration and allows new brake pads to wear evenly. However, if the rotors are damaged or too thin to resurface, you will have to get new rotors.

3. Rotor Replacement

Our most complete brake service involves fully replacing your vehicle’s brake pads and rotors. Depending on the type of vehicle you have, the vehicle manufacturer may require that you replace the rotors every time you replace the pads.
