    Default C5 Wheeltrims

    I have a 2002 C5 which has lost a wheel trim. I purchased a set of aftermarket 15 inch jobs from both Supercheap and Autobarn but neither would fit being too large to sit within the wheel flange.

    Last week , at the petrol station while waiting to fill up, there was a C5 hidden from view at another pump. He only became visible as he drove away but, he had after market trims fitted. I was too late to catch him.

    Does anyone have any information about trims that fit....please.

    John.

    Hi John

    I think if you go back to "Supercheap"and ask them to find a set that will fit. These after market wheel trims are made with different clearances and off sets to cover the market they should have an idea after looking at your wheel but test them there.

    The other option is to see if someone on here has a spare original, but it would pay to show an image of what you have on your car.

    Cheers

    We have a set of Supercheap hubcaps fitted to our 2002 C5 HDi without issue, I even went to the trouble of buying centre caps with 'Chevrons' via ebay for something like $6.00 a set with free delivery ex China

    You could try Harry Hubcap for original hubcaps

    Hi John,
    there is a series one C5 at the Centre rd wreckers, Clayton, ( AKA Imlachs ) with 3 or 4 original wheel trims in the boot. It's right at the very back of the yard in the European section, next to an old VW beetle, so you can't miss it. They were there yesterday.
    Cheers....

    Clogzz, yours are real alloys, not sure where you would get a centre cap. Probably a wrecker would be your best option.

    The cap I was referring to is about 60mm dia. with 'chevrons' supplied as a pressed metal self adhesive, cheap and nasty but dresses up cheap and nasty generic hubcaps - perfect for Mrs GB who likes to curb park by feel

    Cheers

    I've got a set of 4 x genuine 16" alloys off an early model C5 you can have cheaply, if you're interested.

    Just saw your photo Clogzz. The ones I saw are standard wheel trims, about the diameter of a CD, with the chevrons in the centre. These are just flat discs, not the elaborately shaped ones in the photo. So sorry, not the ones you are looking for.

    Thanks to all, and sorry for the delay.


    Chris,

    I’m still looking for a Citroën wrecker in Sydney who doesn’t mind dealing in small parts.
    The hole in the centre of the wheel is 6 cm wide and I may have to use a bearing grease cap to fill it.


    Dcc236,

    My wheels are 15”, so changing to 16” will mean 4 new tyres.


    George,

    That wheel is so strange that nothing standard will fill the recess.
    Without cover, the wheel bearing nut and circlip are out in the open.
    I’ve found a 6 cm cap for a PVC water pipe, but it’s about 1 mm too wide and very hard to file down.


    Thanks to all for your help.

    Hi Graham,

    Tried Hubcap Harry and Centre Road wreckers, both without success. It seems that you may hold the solution to my problem. If you could text me your email address on...0447. 317, 874... we could discuss.

    Cheers, John.

    Hi John,
    CHAMBORD doesn't ring a bell but will do a bit of reseach and see if I can come up with a picture somewhere.
