Overheated pads tend to transfer material to the rotor surface in little blobs, which in turn causes brake judder.Turning the rotors will NOT cure the problem. The bits of randomly transferred pad material give local hot spots which will cause hardning of the steel beneath. This will cause shudder again. Don't waste your time or money on machining the rotors.
OE rotors will work well with Mintex, but consider getting some slotted rotors instead. There is a serious improvement in braking performance to be gained from letting the hot gases from the pads escape down the slots. Pad life will shorten though. Mine last 20k miles.
EBC rotors are good at the price, but for goodness sake, do NOT use their pads!
