So my dad who loves weird citroens has bought one.... He wants to make it a but like this


We have sourced and fitted the bars from germany...
Struggling on the wheels.... The standards are

4x108
65.1 cb
Et27
16"

And id guess 6.5/7j (205 tyres with a 55 wall)

So you can buy +25mm springs to help accomidate tyres

We are thinking drop to 15s to allow a bigger wall? Maybe got 8" wide?

We want 4x4 look tyres that wont be shit/uber noisy on the road... Weller wheels are best ive found but all out if stock?

Any help on wheel choice/tyre size and choice?

I agree - that is 5 stud and his is 4 though

Ideally dont want to use adaptors and still needs to be driveable

See i can find modular wheels like steves in 15 x 8 et00 which i may be able to get away with but then that leaves the fact they arent 4x108 or the correct centre bore

Well ive found i can get these modulars in et35 16x7

If this was the case he could retain his brand new tyres and the car would look a bit meatier due to the 20mm adaptors and the extra inch on the wheels.... Anyone do me a shop?

Heres his

Also for a smaller wheel if your wanting to keep road noise down but have to higher sidewall like the off road tyres you can use a van tyre but an off road tyre would look so much better!

I can respect where he's coming from TB.

Whilst I know they are amongst some of the worst cars ever built, I still want one of these almost as much as I need oxygen...
