they are called 'concorde' alloys. I think they look like mk1 wheels but in fact they are not :D
Love them too.

thanks guys,
sorry for not responding earlier, been kind of busy lately.
yes the rims were an official original citroën option, I believe in 1987, and everybody calls them concordes, but I don't know if that's the original name. the centres are missing, they almost always do, but I've made some molds to get me a new set. I'll keep you posted on that one.

Yes, valver looks good - I like that silver finish. How about some more photos? Perhaps those wheels were Dutch extras only - I have never seen them but they're great. Do they come up for sale very often in Holland?
