And they don't quite measure 3/8", more like 1/2".
Even with spacers you may still rub some at full turn...
I have had 7mm (1/4") spacers on my 2007 4x4 for 5 years and no issues but I too was told not to exceed 1/4" with just a spacer and I didn't want to put an adapter on. As has been said here, you are pushing the wheel away from the truck creating more stress...but 1/4" is fine from what I can tell. I had some custom made wheel AND hub centric ones made specifically for my truck and stock wheels and they fit great...when I just used a generic spacer I had BAD wobble in the steering.
One note on the Toyo MT's though...even with 1/4" spacers mine rubbed some when turning...these are actually 35" tall (many 35s are 34.5") and they are 13" wide with those awesome looking aggressive side lugs...
So I recommend having a hub/wheel centric 7-8mm wheel spacer made...widens the track some also and looks cooler.
Have any photos of your truck? What's the setup (lift wise)?
