If you know the size and ratings of the tyres you need to replace then you only have the easy part to do. Use this link (click here) to get a quote for the tyres you need from

If you don't know the tyre size and ratings you need and you have access to the car then take a look in the front passenger door shut, by the hinges, for a sticker (that looks like these) detailing the information you need to enter into the tool below.

You can enter your car details into the form in this link to TYRES.NET and the system will check the correct tyre for your C3. This can be the easiest way to get the tyres you need at a great price from a choice of suppliers to find the best price.

Common sizes, speed rating and load indexes fitted to various C3 models are found below:

165/70R14 T 81

175/65R14 T 82

185/60R15 H 84

195/50R16 V 88

Fitting stations are further increased in number by F1 Autocentres and are well worth investigating as the have a Price Promise

The Pluriel is likely to have either 185/65R15 88 or 195/50R16 V 88

The original fitment for the C3 were often Michelin tyres of which some, if not most are out of current production and have been superseded by an improved version of that tyre. The links below are to the 'usual suspects' of tyre sized often found on the C3, but in the later version of Michelin Energy Saver type of tyre. Its well worth looking at these as they come with free delivery, but a cost will need to be paid to a tyre fitter for fitting, balancing and disposal of the worn out tyre.

MICHELIN ENERGY SAVER+ - many sizes available, select from the drop-down list
