pressure and types of tires
pressure that Michelin and Citroën advise is way to low. At such
a low pressure the 2CV tends to drift if you go fast around corners.
The tires squeak and you will drift.
That's why we use 2.0 bar (29 PSI) on all wheels. The tires wear less
and the driving behavior is much better.
It is legal to drive on 125SR15 or 135SR15 tires. The standard tire
is 125SR15 and you won't have advantages in using 135SR15. SoSo it
depends mainly on the availability and the price, which tires to
Snow tires are not necessary if you only have snow for a few days
every winter. The 2CV behaves very good on snow anyway. Because of the
front wheel drive, the short distance between the axles and the small
tires you have a big advantage over most other cars.
Snow chains can help to get you quickly out of a mess. If you have to
drive under snowy conditions over a longer period of time every winter
snow tires are recommended.
