I know this question's been a million times, but what color
(brand & number, etc.) do you recommend for rear tractor rims?
In this case I am referring to a VAC-14 Case. It wouldn't be
hard to improve on the red it has now. Plan on complete repaint
this summer.

Thanks,
Glenn F.

Any I've seen the rims were painted aluminum and the axles were panted red.

I agree that a lot are painted aluminum, which I think looks very poor. I bought a new pair of Unverferths once, and they were silver, same as truck bumpers use to be, which I think looks good. Almost all of the rims on tractors at the pulls that have been repainted are silver. One member here insists that rims used to be galvanized, but I have yet to find any under any paint that I have cleaned off. I would go with silver.

I restored this one about 3 years ago for a customer. I used Rustoleum Hammered Silver for the rims.

That silver looks good on a red tractor.
