Most of my X5 guys go BIG when they put spacers on. 25mm (LINK) and 30mm (LINK) are very common on the X. I have a hosts spacers from 2mm to 20mm in our ECS spacers, and from 5mm to 30mm from H&R. As for issues with driving, personally I've been running spacers (ECS and H&Rs) for years on my daily driver and even my track car, zero issues with vibrations and no side effects other than looking great!
