Safe speed control depends on two components - your brakes and your tyres. Symptoms to watch out for include under or over steering, pulling or vibration in the steering column, excessive movement in the pedal and whistling, rattling or grinding noises.
The cost of looking after them is less than the cost of not looking after them, so regular tyre and brake inspection is essential. Catching issues early can also prevent premature wear, reducing your long-term motoring costs. A preliminary brake inspection is free of charge, so never ignore symptoms that could be due to a problem with your brakes.
A thorough brake inspection should be part of your annual servicing routine. Many motorists choose one of our service packages immediately before their annual MOT. A thorough brake inspection usually requires the wheels to be removed so it is also an ideal opportunity to inspect your tyres, wheel bearings and couplings at the same time.
By carrying out a comprehensive brake inspection we can best advise you on how to restore your vehicle’s braking performance to as near factory specification as possible.
We will check the condition of your vehicle's:
- Pads and shoes
- Discs and drums
- Clips and hoses
- Wheel bearings
- Master cylinder and brake servo
- Brake fluid
Our trained experts at RoadWheel Tyre & Exhaust can provide advice and will make sure that your brakes are roadworthy, if not then they may recommend a replacement of brake parts.
