If you can't get one from Citroen an O ring puller will do the same job...

Just be careful levering the caps off. Whilst the plastic may be ok and mar free you need to be cautions levering against the lacquered surface of the wheel. Any surface damage will cause the alloy to bloom especially this time of year with salt on the roads.

Two small Allen keys & a gentle pull was my quick fix.

Just realized that I didn't get any tools to open the wheel hub cap for my 17" wheels.

Do your dealer provide one and care to provide picture for me or how to remove it without any tools?
It's not so recommended to do front/rear tyre rotation.
The front and rear tyres are worn differently (clearly ofcourse) as the rear tyres worn mostly on the edges, hmm because they don't turn...
If you put the rear set in the front the tyres grip in turns might negatively affect the handling...
