Air Brakes
Air brakes (or compressed air brake systems) stop heavy-duty trucks quickly. In this type of brakes, compressed air is used to apply pressure to the brake pad thus stopping a truck. These brakes are a powerful and effective alternative to hydraulic brakes - thus their common use in trucks, buses, and trains. Although powerful and effective, airbrakes need consistent, thorough maintenance. For all your airbrake needs, contact 269-324-0700 or visit R&T Auto Repair Inc. today. At R&T Auto Repair Inc., we have qualified and experienced mechanics who will work on your truck's air brakes.

Brake Maintenance & Repair
Truck brakes are much more powerful than car brakes. Faulty truck brakes put the truck driver, the load, and other road users at risk. If you are not confident in your truck's ability to stop firm and straight when you hit the brakes, then it is time to have them checked and replaced if necessary. At R&T Auto Repair Inc., we will diagnose your truck and fleet's brake problems and offer high quality brake work. Visit our auto shop or call us today 269-324-0700.

Hydraulic Brakes
A hydraulic brake is a type of braking system that uses brake fluid to transfer pressure to the brake pads. Although most heavy trucks use air brakes, some trucks have hydraulic brakes. A hydraulic brake consists of the following: a brake pedal, a push rod, a cylinder chamber, and brake pads. With time, the hydraulic brakes components wear out and thus need replacement. For all your hydraulic brake system needs, visit R&T Auto Repair Inc. or call us at 269-324-0700. We boast the most experienced hydraulic brake experts in the region.

reviewicon

R&T is a great shop. We have taken both our higher-mileage vehicles here for over 3 years now and have no complaints. Their prices are VERY reasonable especially compared to car dealerships' service departments. And, there have been several occasions in which their mechanics have gone "above and beyond" in helping us to get our vehicles out the door and back on the road so that we can keep other commitments. Call early for your appointment, though, because they are always busy!
