From memory these were 15" x 6.5" wheels (I wish I hadn't sold this car).

Gold snowies with polished rims

Went to Jeep style Soft 8 steelies 16x 8 +10, 215/65 front, 16x 8 -10, 235/60 rear. Would not recommend as they are heavy and work the shocks hard (unsprung weight). If I could afford them, I'd go with Basset NASCAR wheels (much lighter)

Got some repro Ford centre caps and did them in a dirty gold. White tyre lettering is a pain in the arse (just done with a paint pen) as if you kiss a kerb or roundabout, you have to do it all over again.

Let me know when the Ute is on the market but I would guarantee based on the reaction I got last time there would be a 1984 S-Pack sedan on the market to replace it and I might be sleeping in the back of the Ute.

Those bottom wheels are Rebel wheels, not sure of the brand name.

The are ROH PROSTARS.

 

Come in 14 x7 and 14 x 8. 14 x8 hard to get.

 

I've had several sets. Couldn't give them away 3 years ago.  Now 14 x 8 go for $1000+.

Polished snowflakes with no clear coat look amazing in good light when clean.

XE & XF had machined faces with clear coat from factory. E series were painted grey I believe? Snowflakes have unique wheel nuts too.

15" x 7" from memory?

Cheviot Hurricanes. This set has been (as far as I know) uniquely machined so the spokes don't reach the outer edge, leaving a nice lip and deeper appearance.

 

14" x 7" with 235/65/R14 Radial T/A tyres.

^^^^^^ To lazy to scrub the blue off the lettering! 
I was going for colour coding with the body haha

You'd think the tyrefitters would've done that but I guess because I said no tire shine they didn't bother
