From Michael Quaranta of OPERATIONS 40 on December 23, 2014:
The real problem is the pull-off of the coating caused by hot tires. It's not just a staining problem. Those coating that profess excellent elongation are the most suspect products.  Surface preparation of the concrete to the condition of CSP 3 or 4  is essential. The coating should be a  synthetic, water-based epoxy with no VOCs or silicates.   

From Howard Ackerman of PermaFloor on December 23, 2014:
The ONLY coating that I have seen hold up for longer than 5 years is a two-component aliphatic polyurethane, polyester type.
