    Default C5 wheels

    Which wheels look best - same wheels Adriatique but the black ones as came with car and the silver ones are as came with car but painted by yours truly. The black ones didn't photograph too well. Must be the morning light or more likely my lack of skill. The silver paint job looks more like as per the option offered a few years ago.

    Silver. I hate black wheels. Looks like there is no wheels!

    I think the silver looks great on the that car, looks more classy.

    For my 3c worth, very few Citroens seem to be improved by sporty wheels that seem to look OK on other cars.
    Agree that the silver is winning.
    Once upon a time:


    Many R4s (incl. fourgonnette), R5LS, R16TS.


    GS 1015, 1220, sedans and wagons.
    CX 2200, 2400.
    ID 1966, 1969, DS21H, DSpecial, DS23 Pallas.
    C5 2002, 2004 petrol and diesel.
    sold ..... D Special 1974 ... to fellow Tassie AFer.
    sold ..... Xantia Activa 1998 (look out Gulargambone)
    sold .....GS 5 speed sedan (what a tale)
    sold .... 1986 2CV6

    And now:

    C5 2.2 HDI 2005 wagon
    CX25GTi 1985 auto
    CX2500 IE Pallas 1985 auto
    DS23 1973 Pallas
    DS23EFI 1975 Pallas

    It's a C5, not an M5, so silver for me...

    Hi Guys

    Funny thing is that it depends on the colour of the C5. We bought a Black X7 V6 fitted with the 19" silver wheels for resale

    Our own C5 is a Mativoire, which is one of the C5's best "colours". It's fitted with the standard X7 alloys.

    We did a swap over of the 19" wheels on to our Mativoire X7 and it just didn't work, but on the black C5 they look sensational. Guess Mativoire is very nice, but a bit conservative, so the original 18" wheels match the car. Pity the dark gray interier on the C5 wasn't a bit less monotone?

    Best regards,
