I recently bought a 1941 (according to serial number)Allis Chalmers B tractor. It has spoke front wheels(with rubber tires) which look factory. Nothing has been modified on the tractor, but I have not seen spoke wheels on a B before. Were spoke front wheels ever put on a model B?

I have never seen spoke wheels on a B and I have had more then one including one that was only hand start which would make it an early B. It may have rims off a WC which if early could be spoke type

What size tires are they? B normally has smaller tires than WC, both in width and height. I"m wondering if it originally had steel wheels on (they were rare, but available) and were cut down and rubber rims added.

The spoke wheels I have seen have actually been the hubs and spokes from front steel wheels that were cut off and a tire rim welded to them.

steel spoke wheels were standard during the war. After that, they cut and welded on ring rims for tires, or threw away the spokes and bought steel rims.
