Default 3rd gen runner with 285/75/16

I have a coworker with a 3rd gen 4runner running 285/75/16 with a small lift (don't know what brand). In order to fit that width of tire and clear the a-arm, he had to run 1/4" spacers.

When he took it to Discount to rotate the tires, they got the wheel off and refused to put it back on, because of the "dangerous" spacer. The store manager gave him a set of aftermarket rims for the time being, and swapped his tires onto the new rims. They will not swap them back short of him bringing the store just the wheels and tires by themselves, and leaving the truck at home. And then it will be $60 to mount the tires back on his original 3rd gen wheels, and he'll be back where he started, but now left to do tire rotations on his own.

Any suggestions? Jaderunner, Squishy?, thefatkid?
