Hi Justin,

All orange.

Not everyone agrees that the rear rims are supposed to be silver. See link and scroll down.

Unless you are a "restoration" purist, do whatever you think looks nice.

Great information! Thank you very much! The tractor is bot completely originial as I have had to make parts for it that matched the originials or as close as I could. So the sotry suggests all orange for my model. I think I am going to jsut stick with the silver and orange on the rears. What do you think about the frotn have you seen them with silver on the fronts as well? I ahve seen them all orange and I don't particularly like that but it is originial I guess.

There are examples in the photos on this site of front rims with orange centers and silver for the outer portions. The link below is to one of them. If that is what you like, go for it by all means. My '42 B has the original front rim paint, what's left of it, as all orange so I know the article is correct in that regard. However, in the end, it's whatever you personally prefer that counts IMO.
