the bx has an offset of 15-22 ont he 16v, (more than std. due to the arch extensions) you should find that pretty much all 4 stud pug/citro wheels will fit as they all share the same offsets except for some of the newer models, ford wheels will also fit but you will need a spacer to bring the offset down (adding a spacer reduces the offset figure! ) from 35 to the 15-20 bracket, wheels are quite plentiful in the sizes for the bx as a lot of saxo owners have a habbit of swapping wheels every 5 minutes! ebay is a good bet for them!
i ran mine on 17's for a while! looks the nuts on them! but the 16v has enough grunt to not make them affect performance much at all! :D

if you type in 'alloy wheel guide' to google then youshould be able ot find a llink to a list with all the makes and models on with the offsets etc! quite handy to have!
