Brakes vs. Brake Pads: What’s the Difference?
Although the terms ‘brakes’ and ‘brake pads’ are often used interchangeably, they actually refer to two distinct things. The term ‘brakes’ refers to the braking system as a whole, including the brake pads, rotors, discs, calipers, and other components. Brake pads, on the other hand, are an individual part of the brake system that’s used to apply pressure to the brake rotors or discs – thus bringing the vehicle to a stop.
