Brakes & Tyres

How Car Brakes And Tyres Work Together

Whether you’re looking for safety or performance is always good to know that the relationship between your car breaks and your tyres needs to be in perfect harmony.

Have you ever wondered how your car breaks work? How do we stop the forward motion of a huge vehicle just by pressing the brake pedal with your foot?

Well, the answer is simple; the mechanical know-how is not. However, the answer to how a vehicle braking system works; is hydraulic pressure to create kinetic energy.

Firstly, when you step on your brake pedal, you are pressurizing the entire brake system and it’s this hydraulic pressure that creates kinetic energy.

Kinetic energy creates friction, which stops the vehicle.

For example, all four wheels of your car are fitted with either a brake rotor or a brake drum that is attached and sping with the wheels.

So when you apply your brakes, your brake shoes or brake pads press against the rotor or drum creating friction. Thus, slowing down and eventually stopping your car.
