What should you avoid?
- Aggressive driving.
Braking sharply involves increased friction, which results in overheating.
- Warping due to impacts.
If the surface of the discs is irregular, they need to be replaced.
- Use of worn brake discs and pads.
Check the condition of these elements regularly, and change them as soon as necessary.
- Installation errors.
If mounted incorrectly, the discs quickly wear out and overheat.
- Replacing only one of the discs.
To ensure uniform load distribution, the discs should be replaced in pairs on an axle.
- Overloading of the brake system.
On long downhill slopes, try to engine brake to prevent the brake discs overheating.
