Toilet Shims - Hard or Soft

MAY be using them soon. At the Borg they had hard plastic and softer rubber (soft like a door stop wedge). Flooring will be vinyl.
When is each appropriate?

I have seen plumbers use pennys on vinyl so I'd guess hard for vinyl. Was there shims previously? I've never had a use for them myself. The one toilet I had that rocked a little on tile I took a hand grinder to the bottom of until it sat still.

Why not make your own from a partial tile? Use your HF angle grinder to soften/shape the edges...

They're also easy to break, particularly after being cut into a thin wedge. A hunk of plastic is better.
