How long do brake pads last:

What are brake pads made of:
There are 3 different types of brake pads.
Semi Metallic brake pads, these are made from different metals bonded together with resin, they are efficient widely available and cheap to purchase. They last longer than Organic pads because they are made from metal. However because they are metal they also wear down the brake discs.
