For example, if you have 60,000 miles and your front pads need to be replaced the rear ones will only be about 1/2 worn out.

How do you change the brakes and rotors on a 1997 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder?

Doesn't anyone believe in going to the library to look at a manual? There is a difference between rear drum brakes and front disc brakes. If you didn't wait until the brakes are down to the steel backing plates, why would you need to replace the rotors? Even if they have normal wear they don't need to be replaced - they don't even need to be turned. Disc brakes are a piece of cake - use a big screwdriver to push the caliper pistons back (make sure you didn't add brake fluid as the level dropped because it may overflow when you push back the piston), take out a couple of bolts to pull off the caliper, knock out the retaining pins, pull out the old pads - put in the new pads... and 15 minutes later, you're done. Back drum brakes should be good for about 100K... they're a pain to change if you don't have the tools (worse case a visegrip works) and should cost three times as much, but everyone makes a big deal out of disc brakes and charges whatever they can get away with. Very good advise above. On the disc, use ceramics (won't squeal, last longer) and do not lose the seemingly useless small V-shaped wire tension clips if they are included in the assembly.

What brakes need to be changed more regularly with 2005 Toyota Corolla?

Unusual question. The 2005 Toyota Corolla has disc brakes up from and brake shoes in the rear. The break pads, (in the front), usually last approximately 30,000 miles. However this is not set in concrete. Brake replacement varies according to use, driving conditions and individual driver habits. People that drive with their left foot on the brake pedal, (and some do), will go through brakes faster. If the vehicle is used to deliver newspapers to homes will go through brakes very fast. When you do change your front brakes, be sure and use genuine Toyota Brake Pads. Most after market pads squeel and are often made of inferior material. Secondly, be sure and have the rotors trued in the process. Rear brakes. The rear brakes will often last 60,000 miles or longer. The reason? The front brakes do 70 percent of the stopping so the rear brakes last longer. The rear brakes should be adjusted every 7500 to 10000 miles and should not be an expensive service. $30.00 to $50.00 and you will get a front and rear cleaning in the process. Hope this helped.

How often should brakes be changed?

If you're talking front ones, and they were installed properly and the system doesn't develop other problems to cause premature wear, and also depending if you're talking city or highway driving, not to mention what quality of parts were installed, I would expect about 35,000. If you have rear drum brakes and you keep them adjusted every 12,000 miles your fronts may last longer. If we are talking rear shoes I would expect 75,000 miles, rear disc brakes about 50,000 miles
