Some Bimmers can have camber issues when lowered, but when stock they are usually fine. The picture you posted is hard to tell if you have a camber issue, but based on the pictures of the tire wear I dont think you do. They appear to be wearing fine apart from the obvious part on the inside.

ECS Tuning, Turner Motorsports and Bimmerworld should all carry wheel spacers. They are safe to use with everyday driving. You have 20" rims so I wouldnt advise "cornering fast". 20"s are not a performance wheel, but its your car. With wheel spacers you can get a stud conversion kit to make it easier to put your wheels on. It replaces the factory bolts that screw into the hub with studs that a lug nut screws onto. Measure the width of the worn part on the tire. Judgeing by the picture id say you need at least a 1/2" spacer.
