I don't know but they look like an after market wheel, the M-H wheel appears to be a wide flat wheel with holes to bolt on a variety of traction aids.
Massey-Harris was huge, then merged with Ferguson to become the largest in the world. I'd assume like the model T Fords there was dozens of companies making strap-ons for them.

That is a wild tractor.
Apparently the first four-wheel drive one, with a strange top drive system.
Here are some links, best one last.
Another grabber of an IOTD.

I'd say they were for traction. I don't know as much about tractors as someone who lives where I live should know.

Maybe skinny to keep it from sliding sideways on slopes?

I was surprised there was agricultural and industrial models. Both came in three different track widths and apparently the Industrial models had a 600 pound weight on each wheel. Yikes.

Yikes is right.
My Ford 8N came with rear wheel weights that were around 300 pounds. With the weight of the wheel itself, the combination felt as if it were bolted to the earth. You did NOT want to drop them.

I had to count out and repack 1000 (loose) 64 pound plates for the front weight rack one time. The wooden crates holding them had broken open and spilled the plates out. The wheel weights came steel-banded to the pallet, thank God. I was working at a warehouse that distributed tractor parts.

Ferguson designed that Ford tractor then split for England to make essentially the same design with a few tweaks, under his own name. Then Massey-Harris in Canada teamed up with Ferguson in England to become the largest tractor company in the world. But only #3 in the US behind Deere and IH.

My Grandpa bought an 8N in '53 (?) as the boys started leaving the farm. He had married into a very horsey family but it was past time to retire the work horses. He did a lot of work with that tractor, a lot of it well over its weight class. They have terrible brakes and are too light for serious loads but nobody got killed. An old guy did roll and get badly torn up on an 8N on the farm I currently occupy... Apparently my cousin is going to fix that bad boy up with a modern distributor, hopefully they get it properly weighted and use it for sensible chores.

I love that term "sensible chores."
It pretty much sums up the utility and safe use of all tools.
It is amazing how many N Ford tractors (2,9 and 8) are still in use. Even more decorate farms all over the land.
Mine is 70 years old (!), is basically all original and willing to do sensible chores every day of the year.

My first chipper had a 4 cyl engine off a Ford tractor.

Many times late on a summer evening I'd be finishing up a long job and the exhaust manifold would glow orange.
