While Firestone was the original tire for just about all Ford products the existing new style tire is (in my opinion) ill suited for a restoration of any of the 39-47 9/2N tractors because the tread pattern is clearly wrong being 23°. Unfortunately no reproduction tire is, or probably will ever be, available in the 32-inch version.
Best to get a 45° pattern in a 9.5x32 of which there are a few brands available. I have Mitas on my two 1939 9N's and I like their appearance. I believe BKT also makes a tire in that size with 45° lugs, but the ends of the lugs are formed a bit more and seem a bit less correct to my mind.
