Default Changing Rotors, Do i need new pads???

Hello all. I have a 2003 F4i with a little over 15,000 miles. i replaced the pads last year and they only have about 2000 miles on them but the rotors i have on it i believe are warped. It pulses really bad when you use the front brake and it seems to be more on the front left rotor. anyways, i picked up a used set (guaranteed straight) and i was wondering if the pads would be okay to use on the "new" rotors and if they're any tips you have. thanks

+1. You'll wanna do the pads if the rotors are warped. it could cause the pads to crack or wear funny as Vangill said.
