Make : Citroen Model : C1 Year : 05> PCD : 4x100
Offset : 35 to 45 Bore : 54.1 Fittings : B 12x1.25

Thought it would be useful to someone =]

Yep. Indeed, when buying always tell them you have an Aygo. The moment you utter the words "Peugeot" or "Citroen" they'll give you the wrong wheels.

Bernard, why is this the case (sorry if i'm missing something obvious)?

I did a search for alloys for an Aygo on ebay and the first one I clicked on was this one:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/15-SILV-RS-AL ... 4165571c5b

In it they have a not inconsiderable list of cars that they believe the wheels should fit. So in theory does that mean that OE alloys for those cars will fit an Aygo/P107/C1 or is that not the case in practice? I saw a nice set of standard Rover alloys on a 45 (really!) today and this had me thinking anyway.

Because every other Peugeot and Cit is 4 or 5 x 108 in varying degrees of offset, whereas there are many small Toyotas and Daihatsus over the years 4 x 100 so they're used to supplying them.

Thanks Bernard, I was getting a little confused with all of the above bits listed, Offset ( I pretty much get this after what someone else wrote), Bore and fittings. The last 2 never seem to be mentioned in adverts...are they vital?

Oh and what is the ideal offset, as above it says 35 to 45 above which seems a large varaiation.

Thanks very much,
Scott

54.1 is the bore size of the standard wheels, not a problem if you are fitting aftermarket wheels eg wolfrace etc because the manufacturer will make the bore size overly large you then fit plastic rings called spigot rings inside the wheels to bring down the bore size to suite the car they are to be fitted to eg 54.1 for the bugs.

If you want to fit Rover wheels you would need to find the bore size Rover use and find out if it is possible to buy the proper size spigot rings, off the shelf these are cheap, a quid or so each. If you need to have spigot rings made these are bloody expensive.

12 x 1.25 refers top the wheel bolt size M12 diameter x 1.25mm pitch. Cheap and easy to come by.
