List of brake pad brands, including the most reliable, popular and inexpensive brands for cars, trucks and other vehicles. Who makes the best brake pads? Major brake pad manufacturers are available online and in traditional brick and mortar stores, allowing motorists to select the best options for their vehicle and change the brake pads themselves, if they're particularly handy. The goal of this page is to provide a comprehensive list of all the major brake pad companies, making shopping and comparison fast and easy.

Having good brake pads is critical. It's a matter of safety: Brake pads are a huge component of any vehicle's braking system. Over time, the pads do wear out, just from general use. Replacing them as soon as they become worn is a must. Selecting the best possible brake pad brands can mean the difference between being able to stop a moving vehicle in time, or having an accident.

Prices for brake pad brands vary, depending on the materials used and how the brakes are actually used on the vehicle. Brake pads manufacturers often state specific recommendations for certain brake pad brands in a car or truck manual. Not everyone wants to use the recommended brake pad brand -- they want to shop around.

This list includes some of the most well-known, recognizable, highest rated brake pad brands available on the market today. Each claims to offer the smoothest and most trusted brake pads to consumers, but all brake pads are not created equal. Sticking with a trusted brand of brake pad can mean getting longer and better car braking performance.
