GM Tesla owners, NRS Brakes here to not only promote our brake pads, but here to help with any questions you may have regarding brakes. Education and Safety is of major importance to us in a very unregulated industry, which led us to founding initiatives such as the Global Brake Safety Committee and Safebraking.com As a company we have been in the brake industry for over 25 years as a brake component manufacturer and supplier. In 2019 we decided to use all our technologies we've brought into the brake industry and create the ultimate brake pad, a true premium experience. From our NRS technology to prevent delamination, galvanized steel to protect against rush, noise dampening NU-LOK shims and piston cushions, our brake pads are guaranteed to last longer than any other. And maybe the best of all, everything is manufactured in North America!

Appreciate the forum members who have already purchased our brake pads for their Tesla, we see you. Upcoming for all Tesla Owners Online members we'll be doing some giveaways, TOO specific discount codes, and more. But please ask away on anything brakes, we'd be happy to answer any questions including the obvious why EV vehicles do need to pay more attention to their brakes.

Some cool stuff that we have done recently include putting NRS Brakes inside Blake Fuller's record setting Mt. Washington hill climb in his Tesla Plaid. We've done a video with Rich Rebuilds and Electrified Garage to showcase our product. A lot of exciting things in the works and always open to ideas from you guys on what you want to see.

Cheers and inquire away!

I bought NRS pads in August for my Model 3 LR RWD (made in early 2018 and had about 60,000 miles on it). My original brake pads still had plenty of friction material on them, but one of the front pad's friction material was cracked and separating from the backing plate. The metal shims on two of my rear pads also separated from the backing plate (they were glued on with some rubbery stuff). I clean and lube my brake hardware every spring or summer, and try to work out my brakes so moisture dries every time I drive in the rain or wash my car. Since I did not want to risk the one brake pad separating and causing problems, I decided to replace them all with the NRS pads. They had been on my wish list since I learned that they existed.

BTW, my old pads were still pretty thick after 3.5 years and 60,000 miles. The old fronts measured more than 8.3mm and the old rears measured more than 6.8mm. The new NRS front pads measured 9.6mm and the rears measured 9.2mm.

Here are the old and new front pads.

Here are the old and new rear pads.

Here is what the front looked like after I was done (I also replaced the rotors, but didn't have to because the front rotors were still smooth and good).

Here is what the rear looked like after I was done (I also replaced the rotors, the inside faces of the rear rotors had small grooves in them).

I bedded the brakes in using the recommended process in the Tesla Service Manual. Have driven 11,000 miles since then with no issues. As long as the friction material doesn't separate on the NRS pads (It shouldn't, and that was the point of getting them) they will probably last me the rest of my car's life.

Thanks for this, and glad you've been pleased with your brakes. With the rise in EV vehicles on the roads, there's been an absurd amount of stories about brake pads delaminating. One project we've been undertaking the last few years is we collect the discarded brake pads from garages across North America to see what's really going on, and it's unbelievable the amount of brake pads that are disposed way earlier than they should be.
