I wouldnt 'use the most thick once I can buy' as shim thickness needs to be selected to bring your deck heights to spec (you'll find this info in the book). The shims you posted are not typical....they appear to have been reused, installed incorrectly or the head studs possibly over torqued. In any case, not typical. You should be fine using the the correct thickness coppper shims, making sure your case and cylinder bases are flush and keeping the head studs torqued to spec.

BTW: Pistons do not apperar to be JE.
