I can assure you they were not red inside when they left Ford Tractor. The other oddity is that one of my 8N's had the inside of its 16" wheels painted red when I broke them down for painting. Once I had them sandblasted clean it was obvious, just like Ford wheels have Ford logos they had IH logo and numbers stamped into them. I can only surmise that some previous owner had picked them up at IH or his local boneyard at sometime. I think I still have that 8N and is the one I use it for my daily worker.
