CitroŽn CX - Tire & Wheel Charts

The pages following are taken from the factory Citroen manual.

These tables can be a bit daunting at first glance, so let's discuss how to read them. You may want to open this page in a new window, to refer to as you look at the tables.

How to read the tables:

The first table shows pictures of a tire, then below that wheels. On the row above the tire sizes you'll notice a number in a circle. This number is the code for that tire and wheel combination - it is used in later tables.

Underneath the tire/wheel table is a small diagram of a car with five wheels pictured (including the spare). The front wheels are labeled "A", rear wheels "B" and spare "C". Again, this will be referred to in the tables below.

Following that diagram is a picture with the word 'BAR' under it, this is indicating that the column underneath shows the tire pressure for the particular tire/wheel/model combination. Calculate PSI from BAR

In the main table you will see a column with model designations, across from that are three columns. The first has the tire/wheel location letter, next the pressure in bars (about 14.8psi = 1 bar) and finally the tire/wheel combination. Notice then a wider column, this specifies the maximum speed recommended for the spare tire when installed on the car. The next three columns repeat the first three, but have a different tire/wheel combination (the TRX combination usually).

There are five (5) pages, so if your exact model isn't listed on this page, don't give up - go to the next page. Also, this manual applies to CX models after about 1983, earlier models while not listed can be inferred from these tables.
