Fillet welds are usually designed so that no grinding is needed (sometimes it is prohibited, such as in some roll cage appliions, because of the risk of thinning the throat too much if there are points of insufficient penetration into the root), but the primary reason isn''t strength, it is cost.

Grinding off a large amount of material makes the area hot and then wavy. You should be able to get your welds to the point where they only need a quick blast with 80 or 120 grit on a flap disc to flatten. Then finish with a rubber backed 180 grit. Dont use a grinding wheel on sheet metal.

The down side is that they wear out faster than steel grinding disks. You definitely have to wear safety glasses and a face shield would be better (always a good idea in any case). There is also an additional debris clean up problem but they can really take off the material. I assume welding supply places have the aluminum grinding disks.
