They don't look too bad, and practical too, must be very easy to bleed the brakes!
What effect have they had on the ride quality though?

The ride has never been great, so I will be getting a full set of spheres sorted soon, not sure when / if they were last done, hydraflush is in there now in readyness for the work. The ride doesn't feel much different.

Very nice looking Xantia, i like the colour 8) Not so sure on the wheels mind, but different, you dont see many xantias wearing non citroen wheels.

And a 2.1TD as well,

Just the job :D I'm not generally a fan of after-market wheels but those look good.

Xac, always the practical one with your brake bleeding comment!!!!

Otherwise ... aok.
Well at least aftermarket rims allow you to do that, unlike the factory fit rims with no centre cap!

Also they do look good!
