Perfect Pairing:
Wagner® Premium Brake Pads and Wagner E-Shield Rotors

Steps to a Successful Brake Job

When replacing worn brake pads on a customer’s vehicle, choosing the right brake pad is the first step on the way to a successful repair. Before finishing the job and returning the vehicle to the customer, take time to replace the rotors.

Brake pads and rotors work together to safely bring the vehicle to a stop. Installing new brake pads but using the old rotors can diminish the stopping power of the new brake pads and cause them to prematurely wear out.

Premium Pads Need Premium Rotors

Premium brake pads like Wagner OEX and Wagner OEX Car give your customer’s vehicle the stopping power they need to safely operate their vehicle. In addition, they’ll enjoy corrosion protection thanks to the galvanized plates. When installing premium brake pads, Wagner recommends completing the repair with premium rotors like Wagner E-Shield Rotors.

Why Premium Rotors?

Wagner E-Shield Rotors are engineered for maximum performance with a protective electro-coating applied to all non-braking surfaces. This black-colored coating inhibits corrosion, makes removal for service fast and simple, and is visually attractive for open spoke wheels.

When using Wagner premium brake pads and rotors, your customer will get corrosion protection from both the pads and rotors to maximize the life of both parts. Your customer will also enjoy enhanced performance and noise suppression that comes with using premium brake pads and rotors.

Final Note

To go with its premium brake pads and premium rotors, Wagner includes premium hardware for many applications. When doing a brake job, don’t use the old hardware; be sure to use the premium hardware included in the box. Old hardware can be weakened and corroded; using the new hardware is the perfect way to complete the repair.
