Jensen Tire & Auto recommends having your vehicle’s brakes examined at least once a year for the safety of you and your family. Maintaining your vehicle’s brakes is among the most crucial measures you could take and Jensen Tire & Auto offers quality, affordable brake service throughout Omaha, and in Lincoln, Fremont, Council Bluffs, and surrounding areas.
Brakes are one of the most important safety attributes on your vehicle. There are two types of braking systems on most vehicles: traditional brakes and an anti-lock braking system (ABS). A typical braking system is composed of rotor, caliper, and brake pads (or shoes). If your brake pads wear out and are not changed, rotors may need to be replaced as well.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BRAKE SERVICE
Why brake repair is essential: In order to safely stop your vehicle, brake pads have to be in functioning condition and not worn down to the rotors. Even small changes in brake performance may indicate your brakes need repairs. For ideal performance and safety, let the team of experienced and certified service associates at Jensen Tire & Auto check and service your brakes routinely.
The sooner you inspect problems and replace brake pads, the safer your vehicle will be. Prolonging brake concerns may lead to other, and more costly, repairs. Serving Omaha, Lincoln, Fremont, Council Bluffs, and surrounding areas, Jensen Tire & Auto is the leading retailer of expert automotive service and repairs — and for the best tire brands —at the lowest prices in town — guaranteed.
