Like Roadrage said, there are literally thousands of aftermarket wheels available.

The wheels you posted look like reproductions of the factory original stamped steel wheels. That style came on pretty much every U.S. pickup truck manufacturer as the standard wheel for a long time (i.e., 1960's through 1990's).

If you are looking for wheels like the wheel vintique you posted, here are some of the trucks that had those type of wheels (not an all inclusive list):

1969-1987  Chevrolet & GMC 3/4 ton pickup trucks: C20, C2500, K20, K2500, R20, R2500
1973-1987  Chevrolet & GMC 1 ton pickup trucks with Single Rear Wheel (i.e., not dually or dual rear wheels): C30, C3500, K30, K3500, R30, R3500
1980-1993  Chevrolet & GMC G series Van: G30, G3500
1967-1996  Ford F-250 and F-350 (Single Rear Wheel) pickup trucks
1974-1995  Ford Econoline E-250 and E-350 Vans
1972-1993  Dodge D250 and D350 (Single Rear Wheel) pickup trucks
1971-1994  Dodge B-series Van: B350

Many versions of the 8-lug 6.5 inch diameter bolt pattern wheel could be had including: a 16 inch diameter wheel, a 16.5 inch diameter wheel, without split rims, with split rims, as well as several widths. Ford wheels would have a small (3/8 inch) Ford oval stamped into them and Dodge wheels had a small Chrysler Pentastar stamped into them. I'm sure there may be some exception, but they all should fit your C20 just fine. No differences in the 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive versions. Until recent years, most all the 8 lug trucks were lug nut centered wheels.

If you're trying to find those wheels in Germany, you might keep a lookout for the U.S. Army Chevrolet or Dodge pickup trucks with 8 lug wheels.  Otherwise, a good used set of 4 of that style wheels can usually be bought in the U.S. for under $200.

Hey Capt, Maybe this info should end up in a technical page somewhere...
