I have posted up the wheels from the "known to fit" category of the wheel FAQ. There was also a section of "could possibly fit" wheels, but I want to keep this to wheels known to fit the 510. If you have additional information or corrections for any of the wheels listed, including updated/bigger pictures (specifically pictures of the wheels on actual 510s), please let me know. I will be happy to add/update individual wheel posts for those wheels posted before this post.

Now...it's up to all of us at The Realm to fill in the wheels we have personally used on our 510s.

Since that can involve a wide range of wheels, suspension parts, ride heights, etc., I'd also like to propose this format, similar to what was originally used by Kurt:

Post Subject: Change the subject line of your post to match the brand/model of your rim.
Wheel Size: - Keep this as a 15x7 (nnxn) format so people can search 15x7 since The Realm search won't allow '15 x 7' being it is too short.
Source/Brand: - Brand and model are more important than source, since Google allows much easier searching than we had back in the day. However, the source you used and the price you paid, if bought new, would be useful information.
Offset / Backspacing: Very important, for obvious reasons.
Weight: Self evident.
Tire Size: Please list the tire make/model and size that you used with the rim you are adding. Tire widths vary across manufacturers for a given size, but with that information anyone can look up the vital measurements.

Notes or 510 Mods Needed: The most important part of your submission. Here, please detail your suspension setup (stock struts, 280ZX front struts, S12 struts, etc.), ride height (measured at the front and rear rocker flat to ground), body modifications (rolled fenders, minitub, flares, etc.), and any other modifications necessary (notched rear a-arms) that are required to fit these wheels to another 510.

Pictures are also very welcome; wheel-only and/or side profiles work well.
Because when you spend a silly amount of money on a silly, trivial thing that will help you not one jot, you are demonstrating that you have a soul and a heart and that you are the sort of person who has no time for Which? magazine. – Jeremy Clarkson
