Small update.
I got that wheel straightened out and summer tires fitted. Before they get put on the car I need to:
  1. Buy bolts,
  2. Get some work done on the brakes and steering,
  3. Wait until it's a little warmer outside (still getting -8įC nights).
As for the bolts, from what info I've found they can't be any old nuts, but a special type made by Citroen for these wheels. The part number is 5405.72 for one bolt, with a price of 17.5 PLN (6.1 USD, 4.5 EUR, 3.8 GBP). This is about 280 PLN for a set of 16, but there is also a kit (part number 5406.08) with all 16 bolts, plus a spacer and key, for 210 PLN.

I saw somewhere that in the UK this kit costs only 12 GBP (plus VAT tax), about 55 PLN (4 times cheaper!). I'd love to get that kit so cheap, but apparently Citroen wants to make more money on much poorer Poles. Maybe I can find a Citroen dealer that will find the kit for less? I doubt it

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
