I'm no "wheel/suspension guru" but I doubt that a 30mm increase in your rear track would make a noticeable difference in handling.

Also putting a non factory designed spacer between your wheels and the hub is introducing a foreign object in a system that was computer designed by BMW engineers with out it. I know people that have lost a wheel when these spacers have worked loose.

It would be better to buy some wheels with that offset and eliminate the spacers.
