Without an unsupported span, Matt, that doesn't tell you what you need to know.

I would advise against the shims and would advise sistering with some 2x6 to flatten and level the floor. Your tiles don't care at all about level, only about flat. If you want the floor level, that's a different matter.

My opinion; worth price charged.
