Tire options

Purchases from second owner who said original owner actually flew over to Germany to see car being built.

Well the stickers are a bit different than what was on my 2005

Can anyone help me understand the tire sizes listed; especially the ones with triangles, squares and circles?

Not sure I get your question. You can put 17" or 18" wheels on it, use "ZR" rated tires (Z is in excess of 149 mph, so you don't have to have Z), and you can use a couple of different size tires. It's giving you a few different options that they recommend.

They relate to the symbols next to the pressures on the right of your label.
