probs a store percific

Anyone know if this could possibly stop breaks squeeking?

You squirt that on your brakes and you will be worrying about more than a squeek lol

Are you talking about on a bicycle?

If so - you have brake resonance - try adjusting the pads at a slight angle to the rim of the wheel and that should help.

Tesco are just pulling your chain. Bet this offer isn't in any other store in the country!

you need to get some 'copper grease' .... put some inbetween the brake shoe/pad and the caliper

Brakes rely on friction to stop you, WD40 reduces friction. You don't want to put WD40 anywhere near braking surfaces.

i got some about 2 weeks ago at the Bracknell branch,(although now sold out) so other stores may be doing this. Pot luck it seems.

We need to know what type of brakes you are talking about.
Car: Drum or disc?
Bicycle: Rubber blocks, disc or even drum?

He's right, for cars you need to apply a small amount of copper grease to the BACK of the brake pads - the caliper pushes against these when you press the brake and will reduce squealing. I've fitted more than a fair few sets of front brake pads on cars...

WD40 won't be any good - it's a light-oil based lubricant!

If you want to replace the sound of squeaky brakes with the sound of you screaming into a corner because your brakes arent working, then by all means.

I wonder if thats whats wrong with my used exercise bike I got from market, even set to zero resistance it needs more effort to move and makes a sound which is part "whoosh" part squealing, after putting some oil on the wheel and the nuts etc it has made it just a tiny bit better, but even using my full body force it doesnt turn easily unlike gym exercise bikes or real bikes!

I'm not travelling that far for it!

For my car and was just wondering if it was a suitable replacement for copper grease. Got copper grease from my mate anyway and it done the job

Nice spot

Picked up a few of these today thanks. Have you seen how much people are selling these for on eBay !!!!
