If the discs are vibrating when braking, it may be worth getting them skimmed (I think that's the correct term).
This seems to involve balancing the discs for you particular car. As long as your discs are thick enough to have a little taken off without going below the legal limit, it may be worth a try</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Skimming is more to get an even surface such as if you have a groove in your disk from uneven pad wear. Disks can warp if they have got very hot and that can cause a vibration. Also, if a wheel weight has come off, the wheel being out of balance will be more noticeable under heavy braking, but I am sure it would be noticeable all the time too.
OEM disks are normally good quality, and a decent set of pads used with them is often enough for road use...
