Ford? Probably a bunch of trucks rusting away with them. I have a set, but unfortunately not for sale.
GM aluminum wheel in that pic.

Does anyone happen to have a set of these for sale near Iowa? They use to be a dime a dozen and now they are pretty hard to come by.
Don't know what part of Iowa you're at or near, but Sam's Riverside Auto Salvage in Des Moines has a lot of them in stock, at $100 each.

Piper Auto Salvage in Bloomfield has them for $50 each.

Thanks for the clarification. Ford had a similar one.
16" I presume?
I could be wrong, but I thought GM were 16" through 2006, then 17" in 2007?
@Philbilly2 probably knows.
I think they went to 17" or 18" wheels on 3/4 ton trucks in 2011 or so, before that they were 16"

1/2 ton GM's had 17" wheels as early as 2005.

Other than some "engineer" trying to validate his existence, I wonder what the point of changing the bolt pattern was? Something tried and true that works, imo leave it alone!!

GM had been using the same 14 bolt full floater since 1973, and now it's gone. Even the 11.5" AAM axle in my 03 Duramax had the same pattern as the 14 bolt.

The Express 2500 still runs a 16" wheel in the old school 6.5" pattern. I service a fleet of GM vans at my shop and darn near every 2500 runs the same 16" steel wheel... and these vans range in year from 2002 to 2019.
