To shim or not to shim

So after researching a bit I've decided to go with Akebono pads for my rears, It's on a 2006 E90.

2 options came up...with shims or without shims. part numbers: EUR1267(no shims) and W0133-1843043(with shims).

Can anybody shed some light on this for me?

Thanks

Ok so I know what the shims are for...squeals. I guess what I'm asking is has anyone put these brake pads on without shims. Are they needed?

Anyone?

I went with no shims and used brake quiet. No issues. I wrote a review of those pads in the rear on a 06 e90 as well.

I think I read your review. The main reason I went with those was dust, although I also wanted close to oem on the grip.

What was your impression as far as the grip goes? How about the feel of the pedal
