About two months ago a got new brake pads - both front and back. After this I noticed a "humming" noise from the front brakes while stopping (rear brake is fine). Only thing I can compare the noise to is a metal wire vibrating in the wind. The vibration is also noticeable. Not severe, but can definitely feel it.
Before the brake pad replacement the brakes worked perfectly.
The braking action is still good, but not as good as it used to be. Takes a little longer, and a little more force to come to a stop.
I figured this was normal on new pads and it would go away as they broke in, but after two months and close to a thousand miles there has been no change.
What do you recommend I do?
Thanks for the help!
