    Either discs haven't been fitted to a clean, flat hub or pads are binding in calipers. Either the caliper need cleaning or the pads are a bad fit.
    Either way, take back to whoever fitted them and ask them to take a look.

    thanks for that, i was also told that it could be a fault with one of the tyres.

    Partially seized caliper, or a bent slider (I think thats what they are called) could also be a cause.

    Did it do it before you had the discs and calipers? I presumed from what you said it started afterwards? If it was before then it could be bushes, balljoints or wheel bearings.
