Any car parts shop will have some Ham, probably cheaper than eBay as well

There's a guy near me whose shop is always quiet..........

When I asked how he survived he said 'eBay' as he can sell things for more on there than visitors to the shop will pay

@Dave, trouble is that they never look very good and look so tatty, and most alloy wheel sales places charge silly money per bolt.

In a kind-of associated question, are all wheel bolts the same size?

Reason for asking is that I only got one adaptor for my security wheel bolts and I'm a little concerned that if I ever lose it, I'm kinda stuffed.

Been looking to get a new set and was wondering if there are different sizes at all?

And seeing as I'm on about them, does anyone have any recommendations for security wheel bolts?
(I don't think I've ever asked such a dull question in all my life !!)

No, there are different lengths and steel wheels have a convex head to retain the wheel whilst alloys have a flat faced one.

Citroen bolts are dual fit for the alloy and spare wheel (details are in your owner handbook) and if you want a second 'key' you can order oner from a dealer using the number etched into the end of the existing one.

Polarised ones?

The best ones I have seen were the OEM ones fitted to Rover Mini Cooper Minilite Style Alloys. The Nut/Bolt came with a corrosion resistant fitted cap over the fastener and never experienced any problems with them looking tatty or going rusty...trouble is not much use on a C4

The bolts are Citroën Part Number: 5405.67

They are called "Monting Screws" (spelling mistake?) on Service.Citroen.com and fit all all hubs with OEM wheels.
The size is 12×125 (mm).

A set of 16 would cost £36.16 inc VAT from your local dealer.

TD themselves will be able to provide you with a new set. They include fixing kits with their wheels usually.
