Why are my brakes binding and not lasting on my car?

Brake pads need to move up against the disc in order to generate a braking force. Once the applied pressure is released the brake pads must move away from the disc in order to remove the braking force. If however the brake pads cannot move away binding will occur. One reason for the brake pads not moving away are because the brake pads are oversize and cannot move freely in the brake calliper.
