If the caliper isn't centered on the rotor, then they are needed. I
recently had to order some shims from TRF because I was rebuilding the front
suspension on a TR6 and the used caliper I got , needed to be shimmed to
allow the new brake pads to fit over the rotor.
I never had to do it before; but this was a wreck and I was piecing
together parts from different cars.
