Puncture Repair on a Citroen 2 CV in Havant

We received a call from a customer in Havant who had a puncture on her Citroen 2 CV.

This Classic Car, called the 'deux-cheveaux' or the 'two horses' in English, was introduced in Paris and was manufactured between 1948 and 1990, this particular one we worked on was manufactured in 1988.

It was originally designed with a very specific brief, Citroen were asked to design a car able to carry four people and a load of 50kg of goods at 30mph. One of the more specific requirements was that the 2CV should be capable of carrying a basket of eggs across a ploughed field without it resulting in a freshly whipped omelette by the end!


The 2CV vehicle has centreless wheels, here at Hometyre we have specific equipment to ensure we can properly balance wheels which are manufactured without a centre hole. This meant that after repairing the puncture for our West Sussex customer we could balance the wheel and get her back on the road safely!

If you have a Vintage Car or just need your Centreless Wheels balanced, call our team to make an appointment today!
