The Rolfs were notorious for their beehive buzzing, there isn't much you'll be able to do about that.
Not much info available on the net for these wheels, if memory serves me right. Axle ends caps are just that, caps, the Rolfs have a one piece axle, least my Sports did.
This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
