Alpina RS Wheel Valves - part numbers

Post by PerryGunn » Sat Jun 04, 2016 12:59 pm

If anyone is unaware, the original wheel valves on the RS can cause a certain amount of bimetallic corrosion on the wheel alloy, to remedy this there are replacement valves available that have a plastic washer at the base of the valve to stop the corrosion. If you are having your wheels refurbished (or tyres replaced) these are a worthwhile upgrade

These cost around £7 each and can be ordered from any BMW dealer: Part # 91.47.3.610.086

Here is a pic to show the difference (old valve on left):-

And a pic of the parts breakdown...
you can clearly see the PTFE washer in the new assembly (upper items) used as the new interface with the wheel compared to the old stainless one:-

If you find them, or any other Alpina-specific part info, it'll be very useful if you (or any other RS owners) can post them here :thumbsup:

Seconded. Sytner flat out refused to do anything about this when I first bought the car (@ 15 months old) as the original owner had the wheels refurbed but they've always had this problem. Finally looking to get around to having a proper renovation done on the wheels so these will be a great investment. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

No reason why they shouldn't - other valves will fit the Alpina wheels
