Brake Repair In Meridian, ID

If you drive a diesel, you can probably think back to a few times when you’re near weight capacity with a heavy load and someone cut you off. If you spend time in the back-country, it’s almost guaranteed you’ve had to slam on the brakes to miss a deer that came out of nowhere.

Diesel trucks are heavy, which is part of why they’re so effective at towing. But when you’re loaded down there’s a lot of velocity, making it harder for your brakes to stop at a moment’s notice.

Cheap brake rotors look like the more expensive ones, but that’s where the similarities end. Cheaper brake rotors actually weigh less than their quality counterparts. They don’t have as many ribs, wear down faster, warp quicker and don’t function as well. With brake rotors, you’re really getting what you pay for.

When you bring your truck to Gem State Diesel, part of what you’re buying is our expertise in sorting through all the parts on the market to make sure your truck is getting the quality it deserves. We don’t use the cheapest parts. But that means when you need them, as you slam on the brakes to avoid the car that whipped out in front of you on Eagle road – our repairs shine.
