American style fridge leans back

Giant Hisense fridge freezer that has two rollers on the back (non adjustable), two rollers in the middle (non adjustable) and two adjustable feet at the front.

When supplied the feet are wound all the way up which makes it a doddle to roll into place.

The thing is that the deliberate design is that the middle rollers are higher than the back ones so that it leans back quite a lot. Lowering the front feet just locks it into place on the floor.

The manual says it has to lean back so the doors "self close". I can see that but it looks cr@p, it is a big incline.

Anyone tried chocking the back up with ply/hardboard etc without any detrimental effect?
