To much offset?

Looking at these wheels for my 2009 trd sport prerunner doublecab shortbed.

17x8.5 my concern is that the 5.75 inches of backspace is to much.
Thoughts?

Ya, that's too much. You'll smack the control arm and maybe the frame.

Would a 1/2 spacer be enough to make these work?

EDIT: Just realized you were looking at 8.5" wide wheels. Totally changes the game. To get to a stock fit behind the wheel in terms of clearing suspension components, you will need a 3/4" spacer.
