Ford 9N rear wheel

I have an early model 9N 1940, the rear tires are 9.5x32. I have since been told the wheel/rim is a 7x32. The tire store destroyed it. Anyone know of a source for either an original or replacement? I understand another option is downsizing to 10x28 but then I would also need the inner rims.
Thanks

Thanks everyone for suggestions. I sarted with trying to find a welder to repair my damaged rim. Called one from the phone book, he didn't do it, refered me to another who have me the name of a welder and old tractor salvage shop and damned if he didn't have exactly what I was looking for. So $85 and a bunch of miles driving, I am hooked up and the wife is off my back. Thanks again, everyone.

The tire store must have overinflated the tube after patching. When it let go it peeled the outside of the rim back like a banana. I had left the inner rim bolted to it and every place there was a bolt stayed as it should. between the bolts the rim peeled back from the tire. In one place it blew out about 6 inches. elsewhere two or three inches. I tried to hammer it back into shape with no luck. Gonna try heating it with my torch and hammer somemore. As you guys suggested, I might have to take it to a welding shop and see if they can reshape and repair a spot that actually blew through. Hard for me to believe 30 lbs of air would do this but that's their story and they are sticking to it.

Vince, what is exactly "destroyed"? I have seen some very well done repairs done on these rims. I just reworked a valve hole on one of my 32 inch rims, and on another 28 inch I welded a strip of metal inside to repair the "hat" that had been rusted out. That rim has been back in service for 10 or more years.If you decide to go with the 28 inch let me know I might be interested in your old tires for my "39.email open,, joe

The 32" rims are relatively hard to come by. Might want to post over on N*Tractor*Club.com as well - a lot of guys over there that collect the more exotic and rare variants on the N. The 32" wheels were a standard offering from Ford in the early days.

The only source for 32" rims is salvage, ebay partouts, etc. Do you still have the rim that the tire store 'destroyed'? How bad is it. Can it be pieced and repaired with at donor rim?

Are threr any identifying marks on the wheel anywhere?
As much mods that have been done to these likely someone here will know what can be used.

However, I recall seeing only one "N" with 32 inch wheels in all the years we had the dealership. That was a very long time ago and all I can remember was how odd it seemed to appear. I don't recall what they used and can pretty much guarantee it wasn't 'original". My guess is that you will need to contact some tractor salvage yards and work out that may fit.
