How do I know if I need just pads or rotors also?

It may be a dumb question but this is the first set of brakes I'm going to do myself without having to pay the dealership a ton. When braking from a fast speed my steering wheel shakes so I'm assuming the rotors are warped but not 100% can anyone give their opinion. Thanks.

Ok that's what I thought. I am looking into the R1 rotors/pads like you said Scott but I can't decide on which ones I should purchase. I have the stock pads/rotors now any suggestions?
