Yep; I feel they give it a 'lift' into the present age a little.
Wouldn't suit most stock C3's at all though I reckon, but with a highly modified one like mine; it’s not like originality counts is it?

...Found this pic, taken by Stingray, showing the 'old' wheels the car had.
I think the current Torque Thruster 2 wheels suit the car better.
