The most important aspect of your car is the ability to brake. This should be obvious, but braking allows you to slow your car so that you don’t hit the car in front of you, or the cat that just jumped into the middle of the road. Your Geo brakes are vital to the continuance of your life and the lives of others, without them, there would be disaster. This is why upgrading your Geo braking system is a necessary step to make your vehicle better.
Geo brake pads are the parts of your brake system that come into contact with the rotors (the big disc looking things). Pads can come in a variety of materials for your car, and each have different biting strengths. The bite strength of a pad is the ability it has to clamp into the rotor and slow you down. Your Geo brakes can be upgraded by simply switching out the stock pads and going with a better material pad from Hawk or Power Stop.
The Geo rotor is that disc I mentioned and is also important to the overall performance of the car. Geo brake rotors can be upgraded to slotted or drilled, and these are useful for reducing the heat buildup or looking good at the show. New rotors will increase the braking efficiency of your Geo and can make you look good doing it.
Upgrading all of your Geo brake parts is going to make your car safer. You will feel more confident and less anxious when you have to make an emergency stop when you upgrade to some new Geo brakes.
