Silver on the rims. Persian orange #1 on the centers, which is the same as the hoods, fenders, chassis.

I assume your just talking about the rears?
On mine the front rims are also silver with
orange center but I assumed someone just
repainted it that way so I made the the
front rims solid orange. (Series I)

I just did some looking. The only color picture I can find of an early version is a D14. It has the Allis Chalmers stenciled on the hood, and the oval D14 on the side panel. It has orange front wheels, with silver front rims. I had thought they started with all orange front wheels/rims. But now I don't know. By 1959 the AC on the hood was now a panel, and the oval was gone, and every tractor in the picture has orange wheels and silver rims[front].

i have never seen a factory silver front rim,the rears are silver with orange centers(spin outs). I sure would not say anyone here is wrong because you can never say never say never when trying to say what a factory did on any one day 50 years ago.

Maybe I can be clearer. Front wheel [center] orange, rim silver. As if they were two piece, which they are not.

Check out the photo of a tricycle D17 being tested at Nebraska straight from the factory in November of 1957. Then you can say you saw one with silver front rims.
