I need to put this to a vote. I have my New Holland S-14H and it is not a factory paint scheme. It will be entirely blue (yes the fenderpan too), but what color wheels?
Stock it was ugly shade of green or gold with yellow wheels.
Current New Holland is blue with white wheels.
However, the New Holland color scheme (decal) is blue and yellow.
If I go with yellow wheels it would still compliment the scheme, and the rear tires would be on slightly faded JD yellow rims and the fronts would be freshened in yellow as well.
White means repainting wheels white, doable, but painful process. I plan to install wheel weights (maybe blue) so the rear wheels would get scratched day one. So here is a pic of the tractor. As you can see it has a yellow wheel and a white wheel, the decal, and the blue I am using. Voting begins now.

Slightly off white. IH white has a slight tint to it.

The wheels in my avatar are IH white.

I voted white but what I see on CL is if you paint the tractor green and wheels yellow you will double what you can sell it for

White! Those are Fors colours and NH was related to Ford. I don't blame you for abandoning that original colour scheme!

Yeah! White. Long as you don't make it that Ugly Greenish they had. Wonder who chose that?  Don't think there was EVER anything else in their brand that color was there?  I like the way it's done now with the white fenders, what's wrong with that?

I like white myself. On the orange Tractor site they did a repaint tutorial and used Kilz for the wheels and looked good.

If you wanted true NH, go ahead and paint the wheels yellow. But the tractor has to be maroon.
