My Grandfather was very progressive for the times. The tractor was new in about 1937-38 and he probably had it come with rubber tires, most would have been on steel at that time. I don't imagine very many Ag tires were out yet, but I think the Goodrich tire company was one of the first.
The chopper was a Gehl with a mounted engine. How would you like the job of raking the hay back ?
