Front brake rotors may be warped

I have a question. I had a complet brake job done last Jun.The replaced roters calipers and shoes. Now my brakes seem like my rotors are warped never had this happen before, but I think they installed junk rotors. I have alot of vibration and the all so grap as the rotors turn. So does anyone have any advice? Almost positive its both side rotors are warped!!

Thanks

It's easy to warp cheap off-shore rotors
Especially on newer cars where they are thinner anyway (to reduce un-sprung weight)
Just tightening the lugs in the wrong sequence, or over tightening will do it no problem
Definitely work it to go North American, or even Mexican if at all possible

If that is the problem, there is no fix per say
Just replacement

cheap or expensive, some model cars are just prone to having brake pulsation problems that recur every year.
