Your vehicle’s brakes are its most important safety feature. Our brakes tend to be something we don’t give a lot of thought—that is, until they’re not working properly. If you notice your brakes are starting to grind or squeak, feeling “spongy” or “jittery,” or causing you to push your brake pedal to the floor, your safety could be at risk. There are many components to a properly-functioning braking system, and the experts at Wheeling Auto Center understand everything, making us your trusted brake repair partner.

Our brake repair & replacement services include:
All standard production cars on the road today use a similar braking system—utilizing hydraulics to transfer the force of your foot on the brake pedal to cause friction at your vehicle’s wheels. Friction is created by using a caliper to push a brake pad into a spinning disc or by pressing a brake shoe against a spinning drum. An anti-locking braking system (ABS) uses a computer to determine when you’re braking too hard to compensate and keep your car from skidding out of control from too much brake force. All of these systems work together to stop you safely regardless of the road conditions or weather.
