For some reason today was suddenly wondering what the effect of the tires are on brake pads and the rotor.
I had my verna's rotor's skimmed at 23000km for steering wheel judder and the front brake pads changed at 26000km due to uneven wear.
I am running michelin xm1+ and I found that the grip level is probably not as satisfactory as I would like it to be.
To what extent does the grip level from the tires affect the components of the brakes? Poor grip from the tires would obviously mean more stress on the brakes. But how much stress?
Likewise, would poor alignment mean that one side would be under more stress than the other during braking?
