    How should I treat my new pads and rotors - ride them hard, take it easy,...for how long?

    Cheers, Hugh

    Hugh,

    I suggest you refer to your owners manual re vehicle operation for the first few hundred miles. In a nutshell, operate the vehicle in a moderate fashion, no towing of trailers and avoid panic stops if possible.


    Cheers, Dan.
