Tire Marks on Concrete

Our concrete driveway is covered with tire marks. The driveway is only 16 months old and we would like to get looking like new again. Most of the available driveway cleaners say nothing about tire marks, only grease and oil. It has been suggested that power washing is the best remedy. Any suggestions ??

Tire Marks on Concrete

Hmm it sound like someone is ether stopping fast in your drive way or perhaps spinning there tires.

If you could get them to spin them in straight rows next to one another you could make you concrete look like black top :D

All that a side. I agree pressure washing perhaps with a pressure washer that has a heater would most likely be one of the better ways of trying to release the rubber. Some concrete floor cleaners do loosen it to some degree also. But most of the stronger ones turn a green color when using and it may look like you are putting antifreeze or something in the sewers. The pressure washer uses milder soap and shouldn't be an issue.

PS: depending on if somone spun there tires really hard and long(time) there you may find the concrete has poped/blistered under the rubber from the heat.
