Citroën CX Tyres


  • When Citroën first made the CX it fitted 185R14 Michelin tyres. Some models also fitted a 175R14 on the rear; this was very much a period fad of Citroën on cars like the DS and CX.
  • Today however the tyre for these cars is the 185 HR 14 Michelin MXV-P. It is of a high enough specification for all these tyres, and there is no benefit to having the smaller tyres on the rear. Fitting the 185HR14 Michelin MXV-P resolves any difficulties you might have fitting a wrong size spare.
  • In the Mid '80s (approx. 1985) the Citroën CX changed to 195/70VR14 MXV (or MXL on the lower specification models). These tyres are no longer made.
  • The 185 HR 14 Michelin MXV-P is of equally excellent carcase structure and would still be the best tyre for these later 80's Citroën CX cars on 14" wheels.
  • The 185 R 14 Michelin MXV Whitewall offers a white wall alternative without compromising on performance.
  • For these tyres we recommend the Michelin 14F inner tube.

  • The Citroën CX also moved on to The new Michelin TRX tyres so many of the Citroën CX GTi and CX25 models fitted the 190/65 HR 390 Michelin TRX tyres. The Citroën CX 25 GTi Turbo however fitted 210/55 VR 390 Michelin TRX tyres.
  • Do be careful of these cars, when it comes to tyre pressure. it varies per model so please check carefully.

History of The Citroën CX

The Citroën CX is an executive car manufactured by Citroën between 1974 and 1991. During its 16-year manufacturing run, Citroën sold approximately 1.2 million CXs. In 1975, the CX was named European Car of the Year. The name CX is the French equivalent acronym of Cd, which stands for drag coefficient in English, and it draws attention to the car's aerodynamic appearance, which was unusual in 1974. Some aficionados see it as the final "true Citroën" before Peugeot took over the firm in 1976.

The CX was also the last successful model of the "big Citroën" period, which started in 1934. A four-door fastback, a station waggon (shooting brake, or estate vehicle), and a long-wheelbase variant based on the estate chassis were all options. Citroën's distinctive hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension technology was used in the CX.
