Ford Tractor never painted the rear wheels, only the center discs. Front 3 x 19 rims were painted. The rear rims were zinc or cad plated. Most restorers today opt to paint as re-plating is very costly. I use a special wheel paint sold by CASE/IH called 'SILVER ARGENT' -see photos below. I suggest that you don't waste your time and money using a cheap, aluminum or metallic shade paint as they will fade and rub off after two years -trust me, based on experience.

FYI, Ford Tractor Paint Part Numbers:

Ford Dark Gray (9N/2N) - M2888

Ford Medium Gray (8N and Up) - M-13243
