Brakes – we trust them so much and yet know so little about them. Cape Town is a city built on a hill so good brakes are essential. As a rule of thumb have your brakes checked every 20,000 km. The front brakes wear twice as quickly as the rears (they work harder). Don’t worry about the black soot on the front rims; it’s normal.
At Hi-Q Cape Town we recommend changing the brake disc and brake pads as a set to ensure safe braking from the time the new parts are fitted. We fit good quality generic parts or parts sourced from the agents if requested. Value is more important than price. Don’t buy cheap brakes.
