Overseas Motors BMW - Brakes
BMW brake and friction parts are the only ones designed, engineered and recommended specifically for BMW's. They're built with the understanding that can only come from being the Original Equipment (O.E.) manufacturer.
If you're looking for the most inexpensive brake parts, you could be compromising quality. BMW brake parts deliver high value through high quality. When you purchase BMW OEM Parts, you have BMW Motor Corporation standing behind you.
The BMW comprehensive line of brake parts includes:
- Pads and Shoes
- Super Duty Brake Pads
- Rotors and Drums
- Remanufactured Calipers
- Wheel Cylinders
- Brake Hardware Kits
Pads and Shoes
Only BMW pads and shoes are recommended by BMW Motor Corporation to ensure they provide the right balance and performance for BMW vehicles. Many competitive brands say they match O.E. with their use of shims, slots and chamfers to help reduce noise. But in reality, these competitive products are built according to the Friction Materials Standards Institute's (FMSI) version of the first O.E. pad and shoe specifications for each vehicle, which does not reflect the ongoing testing and improvements of BMW Motor Company. When comparing the accuracy of the FMSI specifications to BMW O.E. pads, it was clear a large percentage of O.E. part numbers had been updated since the FMSI printed their specifications book.
BMW pads and shoes:
- Are manufactured with friction formulas selected for their performance on BMW vehicles
- Employ friction materials that have been tested to ensure they meet the stopping and fade performance requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards
Rotors and Drums
BMW rotors and drums provide less wheel vibration and reduced new brake pedal force.
- Consistent process control on the chemical composition of the U.S. iron leads to consistent hardness and strength, resulting in better long-term durability
- Maintaining strict standards on the rotor plate thickness reduces high temperature warping
- Machining all critical surfaces on the same mounting results in more parallel hub-mounting and braking surfaces. This provides more even wear over longer periods, less thickness variation and lateral run-out, which in turn means less vibration both initially and at higher mileage
- New or enlarged bolt-hole chamfers on mounting surfaces minimize concerns of rotor distortion during rotor and wheel installation
