Default Effects of Flaked Oats on brew

Howdy,

I've been making lots of BIAB simple wheat beers lately and settled into a simple 50/50 ratio of two-row to red wheat, generally 3 pounds of each grain for 3 gallons of wort. I've been using flaked oats at different amounts and not noticing much difference between 10 percent and 2 percent. What ratio of oats would you recommend, and what does it "do" to the final brew?

Oats give a "slick" or creamy finish to a beer, and can be almost oily in over 10%. I don't use them much, just in oatmeal stout. Flaked barley works great for body and head retention, and I use that in darker beers as it causes a haze in lighter colored beers.
