16" rim on trd prerunner

So Ive got my wheel picked out (online)and I happen to to notice a 4 wheel parts store so I swing in and look at the rims (moto metal 951) and ask the guy for an installed price. He's like "we wont put 16" rims on a tacoma as they will rub on the caliper, only 17" or bigger".
Is this the case???
I then ask for a price to do 5100's all around w/ a 2 inch aal and he print's me out a quote for $1200. Needless to say I will order online.

In general, it is a good rule of thumb to believe the exact opposite of anything 4wp says....ever.
