Schedule a brake pad replacement in Lake Charles, LA

Driving with worn-out brakes puts everyone on the road at risk. It’s vital to get a brake pad replacement when your brakes respond sluggishly. Even before they fail completely, brakes will lose their effectiveness over time. When that happens and you need to make a sudden stop, accidents happen.

Brake pads should be replaced every 50,000 miles or so. If it’s been a while since you’ve replaced yours, visit Prien Tire Shop, LLC. The expert mechanics at our Lake Charles, Louisiana tire shop will perform your replacement quickly.
