15" wheels were optional for the entire AD (47-55) series. I don't know of anywhere that sells "correct" wheels, as in exact reproductions. But wheels are available along with hubcaps that are slightly different than original. The original hubcaps just cover the lug nut recess. Your wheels would take larger hubcaps that fit over the bulge outside the lug nut recess.

Great thanks - So I guess I am in the market for some original wheels with clips. or maybe add clips to what I have (for the original hub caps) and try and find some taller tires, would that be a good option to get the original look?
Cletus, I wish you good luck. Please let me know if you find 8 of the originals. The old timers like me got rid of them. My Dad had a Allis Chalmers/ Deutz/ Stiger/ and Versitile dealership and too many field brands like Ghel and New Holland etc. He bought all of the rims he could find for farm equipment. Doc.
