A typical box of brake pads contains four brake pads. These are usually two inner and two outer pads, but it all depends on the car’s make and model. There is no one set number as some manufacturers use different amounts per box. Each manufacturer will have its own suggested number of how many brake pads you should replace at each servicing; this information can be found in your owner’s manual.
Do a box of brake pads come in pairs?
A box of brake pads generally comes with two sets of inner and outer pads. This is because the manufacturer only recommends replacing brake pads in pairs, as it ensures even braking performance no matter which side of the car you use.
How many brake pads do you get in a set?
A set of brake pads is generally for four wheels and will contain two sets of inner and outer pads. A typical box of brake pads contains four brake pads, meaning that a set would typically consist of eight brake pads. However, this does vary between manufacturers and models.
If the car has more than just one set of brakes (e.g., front and back), how many brake pads come in a box?
The number of brake pads in a box can be different depending on whether you have separate fronts and backs to your braking system or not. Some cars include front and rear discs; they make up one whole braking system with one set of brake pads. However, if you have separate front and back discs, two sets of brake pads come in a box; this is because the manufacturer only recommends replacing the brake pads in pairs, as it ensures even braking performance no matter which side of the car you use.
