Without brake shoes, the function of the brake drum would not be possible. The brake shoe has external brake lining around its outer arc and pushes against the brake drum to slow down the rotation of the wheel, causing the car to stop. A brake shoe set consists of a primary brake shoe, which is larger and a secondary brake shoes, which is smaller.
Due to the nature of their job and the amount of friction they endure, drum brakes and drum shoes can become heat damaged, which can negatively impact braking performance.
