I've seen wheels from ZXs and Xantias on BX's before, and I believe some C5 wheels may fit. May be worth checking out the equivalent Pug models too (405, 406, 306, 309 etc).

205 GTI wheels will fit fine as will the 'steel' aluminium 15in from early C5s.

I've seen Saxo alloys too on a BX but they don't look good IMO!

peugeot/citroen some ford as long as the stud pattern is 4 x 108, you may have trouble getting anything any wider than 6J on the rear.

Its not quite as simple as that as Ford wheels have a much greater offset as do some of the Peugeot wheels. For a BX the offset needs to be in the range 16–22mm in order to fit without problems. Ford wheels mostly have an offset of 35–40mm and will require spacers to fit. From memory I think the 206 alloy wheels have a greater offset as do some of the 406 wheels.

this is my tzd turbo with some pug 205 gti alloys on, picked them up locally off ebay for about £50 for 5 rims they were in quite good condition just needing a little attention and a coat of Wurth wheel paint. seem to be plenty about on the bay. you will need longer bolts for this type.
