Are these chevy wheels?

I bought an '86 14 bolt axle to put under my '79 half ton. I did not get any wheels with it. I found these wheels at my local used tire place and got some tires to put on them. They fit and will work fine but i'm not sure they are correct. I had many 8 lug wheels to choose from, but i chose these two. They look like Chevy wheels to me. However, you guys look and tell me what you think.

Notice the gap between the wheel and the hub, thats my main concern. Wouldn't the correct wheel fit right up against the hub? Also Notice how you can see the drum sticking out behind the wheels. Is that how it should be? They don't stick out on the stock 12 bolt

Well i've noticed most ford wheels have the ford emblem stamped in them. I saw some of those in the pile of wheels that i got these wheels from and I chose these because they didnt have any brand markings on them. That doesnt mean that these couldnt still be ford wheels tho.

The gap around the hub is normal when using Ford or Chrysler wheels on a GM truck. The Fords and Chryslers have a larger hub hole than GM but the same wheel bolt pattern.
