Frequently Asked Questions


How long should brake discs and brake pads last?

There is no fixed lifespan for brake components. Brake discs can last between 50,000km to 100,000km and brake pads should last between 25,000 to 55,000km. However, this depends heavily on many factors, such as the kind of vehicle you drive, the road conditions you drive in, and your driving habits.

There are actually many more variables, so even comparing usage data from the same car can give very different results because of all these factors.



How do I know when to replace my brake pads?

Most brake pads come with an audible wear indicator. This is a small metal attachment that will make contact with the brake disc when the pads are worn out. When the pads are worn, it will make a very loud, high-pitched noise, signaling that it's time to replace your brake pads.

For modern high-end vehicles, there is a brake pad wear sensor attached to the brake pad, which sends a signal to the car's ECU to display a warning light on the dashboard. The symbol for a brake pad change is a red or orange circle with six short lines around it - three on each side. This may or may not have an exclamation point in the middle of the circle.

As a rule of thumb, it is always good to ask your mechanic to inspect your brake discs, brake pads, and brake fluid on your car whenever you do an oil change.



How do I know when to replace my brake discs?

Brake discs must be replaced when the disc thickness is below the minimum thickness as specified by the car's manufacturer. This measurement can be found usually on the edge of the brake disc itself or in the car's owner's manual.

As a rule of thumb, it is always good to ask your mechanic to inspect your brake discs, brake pads, and brake fluid on your car whenever you do an oil change.

What is the temperature range of ICER brake pads?

Before we answer this question, temperature range does not address performance or stopping power. All it does is state at what operating temperatures brake pads are at their best in. This is not a good basis for choosing brake pads unless you are in professional racing.

ICER does not publish temperature ranges for its line of brake pads. They are, however, tested for use from snowy conditions to summers in the desert, meaning they are designed to work in any temperature you will encounter on the road.
