Aftermarket tow hook recommendations

I'm looking for recommendations on after market tow hooks (preferably one that folds down/doesn't stick out like the OEM tow hook). There seems to be no shortage of these tow hooks but I'm worried some are more for look than functionality. Last thing I would want is my tow hook to fail when I need to get towed.

They only have one size for the F8X M3/M4, I don't know the length.

I powder coated my oem black and put it in the rear. I think it looks good.

Some track organizers require folks to put tow hooks in.
