Many folks run them with no issues and look great...but for me, I couldn't handle the thought of a spacer between my wheel and hub. I installed 15mm rear and 12mm front on my 335is and swear the rears were rubbing a bit. Never heard anything but noticed a small groove on the edge of the tire after a few days of driving. Simple statics calcs will tell you the farther out the rims are, the more moment you'll get. Plus you have 2 shear planes to deal with. I'm sure they were well within the tolerances, but I couldn't shake the thought so I removed them and ordered new wheels. As far as brand, the BMS spacers were great and came with extended bolts to maintain the proper thread engagement.
