What kind of coating system provides the strongest resistance to staining from hot tires on garage floors and parking decks?

Selected Answers

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.
