About Brake Shoes

A worn or damaged brake shoe is a safety risk to yourself and other road users, and should be replaced every 50,000 miles. We stock high-quality brakes shoes for all makes and models of car.

The job of the brake shoe is to produce the friction needed to slow and stop the car. It consists of a curved surface of steel covered on one side with an abrasive lining material. Brake shoes are to drum brakes what brake pads are to disc brakes. Disc brake systems can cope with higher temperatures than drum brake systems, but brake shoes are cheaper than brake pads. While brake pads can be bought with a choice of friction materials to suit different driving habits, brake shoes use a generic material and will perish more quickly if you are prone to excessive or hard braking. It’s advisable to replace your brake shoes in sets to ensure even wear.
