Hello Guys!

I have a C4 (2005, 1.6 petrol, 5doors) in Hungary since January.
I like the car, and now I would have the opportunity to get new alloy wheels for it, and this is the part where I need some help.
The wheel has the following parameters:
6,5Jx16" ET20 4x108
It is one of the alloys from C4 Cactus.

The question is, would it fit to my C4 without causing any problems?

Thank you in advance!

Only difference in that spec is that the offset is 5mm lower but you could always add a concentric spacer to make up the difference.

Early C4 was 4x108 ET25 - all in the FAQ: - Click Here -

I was just coming to ask a very similar question. Been looking at various new wheels and pondered how the cactus wheels might look. Has anyone got a set already? How does it look with the c4 hatch? (might do a bit of photoshopping if not!)

The ones I've looked at are offset ch4-19 but as said 5mm spaces are cheap and easy to get hold of. I don't suppose the 1mm will make much difference right?

Hi folks, I have a goo on me to do a little cosmetic work on my C4 Coupe. I hope this is the right forum. I can't afford new Alloys, but have stock Alloys on the car which I like. I was thinking of painting them black. Anyone do this? How did it look? My car is silver. Thanks.

Not sure which model you have but here is a silver Coupe with standard wheels (Resolfen) painted black. Not my car by the way.

Don't know if the old C4 is the same as the new C4 2010- but will ask anyways.

I have winter tyres on rims with size 195/65R15 6,5JX15 ET20.
The stock tyres for this car are supposedly 195/65R15 6.5Jx15 ET29.

The difference in ET size is 9.

Will the ET20 rims fit my C4 1.6 e-HDi built in year 2011 ?

Thanks

The info is nice, but it still does not answer the question if the car would behave normally if the ET number is smaller than the default one.

They will most likely be fine. The ET20's will likely sit in the arches nicer if anything. Steering may be ever so slightly heavier. That's about it.
