8N would have been painted as a "Red Belly" regardless of year.
Truck tires make it easier to steer in soft dirt, not so much on hard ground.
Check out John Smith's site for some good info on the ID. (link below)
Congratulations on the new tractor, hope it works out well for you!

|Dealers, when repainting earlier tractors, reputedly would use |
the flashy new Ford Blue to make the machines look newer. And
owners would often do the same. So it is pretty common.
Interestingly enough, the blue n's I see always seem to be in
about the same state of decay, with the blue peeling off to
reveal rust or red paint, so one suspects painting them blue
enjoyed a brief vogue shortly after Ford came out with the new
Mine had big, stiff, 8x16 truck tires on my 8n when I got it. They
were pretty necessary with the loader, but hard steering after I
got rid of the loader. Now I'm running old Harley 16" tires which
are in endless, free supply at your local Harley dealer, and work
quite nicely, especially considering the price.
