1985 Citroen GSA Break
Citroen GS Tyres
- The Citroen GS left the factory fitted with the 145 SR 15 Michelin XZX. They are still the only proper tyre for a Citroen GS.
- There is also a 145 - 15 Firestone F560 tyre that is in the correct size for a Citroen GS, and when these tyres were built originally by Firestone they were a better proposition and a good price.
- However today they don't bear consideration, and you should just fit the 145 SR 15 Michelin XZX on a Citroen GS.
- For these tyres we recommend the Michelin 15E inner tube.

History of the Citroen GS
Citroen produced and marketed the GS as a front-engine, front-drive, four or five-door, five-passenger family car in two series: for model years 1970-1979 in fastback saloon and estate body styles, and then as the GSA for model years 1980-1989 in hatchback and estate body styles — the latter after a facelift. The overall production was around 2.5 million. The GS was designed by Robert Opron and features an aerodynamic body shape with a drag coefficient of 0.318, fully independent hydro-pneumatic brakes and self-levelling suspension, and an air-cooled flat-four engine. It has a low nose, a two-box silhouette, semi-enclosed rear wheels, and a sharply vertical Kamm-tail.
