Hi Husdon,
What size alloys can i get, i have seen some 15'' ones, would these be ok.
Have a look at this tyre size topic, the C3 was even fitted with 16" alloys at the factory.

To get a bigger diameter wheel to fit, just go for the lower profile tyre.

There are some 16 inch wheels for C3 (here) on ebay.

Is the stud pattern on the C3 different to other similar small citroen's ?
The C3 is going to be very similar to C2 and small peugeots as many of the same parts are used across the ranges.

Can a set of 14'' alloys from say a saxo or similar fit the C3 ???
I would go for at least 15", if you can find some, go for 16" because the 14" just look too small in the arches, Saxo is a very old car, not in the same era as C3 so I wouldn't expect them to fit. Stick with similar year Citroen and Peugeots.

Thanks for that, i will take a look on ebay. I only ask about alloys because the cost of new genuine trims are just silly and not much less than a second hand set of alloys !!!

Yes, they are also more hard wearing, look nicer and you may even get a half decent set of tyres thrown in for the price too :)
