Morning,
I know they interchange. What prompted me to make this post was my red 8N wheels. Fronts are Ford KH script but under the layers of inferior flaky grey and orange paint the wheels have what looks like a superior quality factory red. Under the red is metal.

Thank's, Chris

I am asking for some follow up here. The loop rims were on this 1948 photo. This is the rim I was asking about, hence the reason I posted this on the Massey forum. Did Massey have these 6 loop rims original or did these guys swap rims on a new tractor? They appear to be the same, were there different weld techniques used between aftermarket and Massey?

At some point someone went through the trouble of taking the original grey off the wheels before painting them red. The red reminded me of the Massey's we ran. They did a good prep job getting it to stick. With a few exceptions I could usually spot an automobile or piece of equipment with a respray that came through the shop.You experienced hands probably recognized I am a rookie to antique tractors. Thank's for the information.

Ford Tractor nor Ferguson ever painted rear wheel red. Yours are the 6-Loop Aftermarket Style that someone previously splashed red paint over. What's a 'superior quality factory'??? Ferguson rims used scalloped center discs to avoid copyright laws for stealing the Ford design. My OEM FORD 28 x 9 Hat Rims, restored with the FORD & Kelsey-Hayes logos stamped inside:

After the Ford-Ferguson split Harry Ferguson made an agreement with Goodyear they supplied all wheels and tires for all Fergusons. My To35 wheels say made by Goodyear- January 1/ 1955.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
