First I tried scrubbing with a bleach/Simple Green solution, but that didn't work that well. An internet search on the subject said to try a degreaser. Even with Dawn & the Wash Wax All Degreaser, the photo below is the lightest I got the marks (that's one of the dually marks). They may lighten some more over the winter with the weather, but I'm not holding my breath, at least based on what I've read.

I guess it's off to WalMart to get some of those cheap/flexible cutting boards to put under the tires next year when I bring it back to my place so it doesn't do the same in the future.
I was simply going to say nice battle scars. Bt I get the point. Anyway I see several good solutions here. I would simply click a LIKE to those but have no idea how.
Anyway the carpet idea sounds simple and useful. but after some time I assume you will see a shadowing there as well...JMO

I don't think using carpet is a good idea. I figure it will hold moisture more so than other suggested products. On bare concrete or protective pads, moisture will be held at the tire for awhile. It seems to me, the carpet will prolong the moisture content.
I've only noticed tire marks on the concrete when I turn the font tires.
