Top 10 Brush Research Brake Parts
for October 2022

Car brakes are one of the most critical safety features on your car, and replacing your car's brake pads and rotors can extend the life of your car and prevent accidents. The brake parts you use in your car or truck depend on the type of car you drive, but brake pads come in a variety of types, including organic, semi-metallic and ceramic.

The Different Guide has tested the latest brake parts, including brake pads, rotors, calipers, hoses, and more. We evaluate each brake part for performance, including stopping power, fade resistance, and stopping distance, and for ease of installation, such as having the correct size bolts and washers. We also test brake parts for durability, such as whether brake pads wear evenly over time. Here are the top 10 brake parts to buy in 2022:

What We like

These ceramic brake rotors are the strongest in our roundup, but performance is merely average. Plus, while they do work well, the metal dust generated by the brakes is annoying in trucks.

What We like

Portability is another reason why we loved these mirrors. We built them to carry easily in your glove box, and the stick-on mount keeps them in place. The convex shape makes them easy to see, too.
