You rely on your car to get you where you need to go. More importantly, you rely on your brakes to slow down and stop. The brakes are one the most important safety systems on your car for preventing accidents. Without properly functioning brakes, you might be in for a scary ride. Don’t be caught unprepared for the time they don’t protect you.
Because your car’s brakes are so important, it’s critical to perform regular brake checks to ensure they're working correctly. At Fisher Tire Company Inc., we perform a thorough inspection of all brake parts for drivers like you in Knoxville, TN, Oak Ridge, TN, Lenoir City, TN, and surrounding areas. Our brake inspection covers brake hardware, hoses, and fluids.
With the changing seasons or increased travel demands, you may find yourself relying more heavily on your car’s brakes. Don’t assume they’re fine, or wait until there’s an issue. Educate yourself on the rate of wear for your brakes as well as to what indicates a brake problem.
At Fisher Tire Company Inc., we provide the following brake services:

It's recommended that you ask for a brake check around the same time as a tire rotation, roughly every 6 months, to get a better understanding of how fast your brakes wear. Throughout the life of your vehicle, you should expect to replace the brake pads and rotors at least once depending on the quality of the parts, how frequently you brake, and your driving environment.
There are several indicators of brake problems.
Do you hear any of the following:
These sounds indicate a problem with your brakes pads, which can in turn lead to other brake problems. The brake pad lining begins to wear out, causing the metal backing to contract the brake disc, which damages the brakes.
If your brake pedal shakes when you press it, this may be a sign of bad rotors. It is also important to feel if your car pulls to one side when braking. Pulling indicates a bad caliper or uneven brake pad wear, which can happen from uneven distribution of pressure in the brake lines.
If we do find a problem with your brakes, we will discuss repair options with you. At our shop, we perform all brake repairs with precision, as timely as possible. A minor repair now can prevent a major repair, or something worse, in the future, so call us today to schedule an appointment.
