I'm not from Phoenix but you can call around and find out how much shops charge to change out the rear tire. Or take the tire off yourself and take it to a shop and have them change it out. Most smaller shops should not have a problem. And still there is no liability on anyone's side except yours.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

If you carry in your tire and wheel assembly, most shops will not have a problem mounting a car tire on a m/c wheel. If they ask, tell them it's for a trailer that is used on your farm.

However, finding a shop willing to mount the tire/wheel assembly with a car tire mounted on it on to the m/c is a totally different liability issue. If something where to happen, the shop can be held accountable, and their garage liability insurance will likely not cover the loss. For a shop to have insurance to cover doing such takes manufacture's insurance. The difference is that engineers over see such a decisions, and such decisions can be back by science and research.
