Default Vehicule Tires left on wood floor leaves bad marks...help

Ok look, i'm having a bad day ....
I have left on the floor some winter tires. Now need to change them on the car and i see bad marks on the floor.
It's like the contour of the tire left a print mark on the floor....

I have tried all kind of stuff... magic eraser, lighter oil, degreaser of all sort .... now, the only option i have left was to sand the damn thing out...
Obviously i just cant sand the wood floor because it leave bad marks on it ...

What are my options.. PLEASE I NEED DESPERATE HELP...

Here's some pictures

P.S. The mark seems really encrusted in the floor...inside of it... The only method i was able to remove some was to sand the floor with 80 sand paper....

Did you read the link? Did you you try it? If no one reports results, we'll never know for sure.

Is there a solvent for the spray-on tire finish enhancer

Standing them on their tred, takes up less space and a bath towel protects the floor.

The finish is stained from the chemicals in the rubber. Sanding is probably the only option.

A towel would work laying down too. Just for the record, you are not supposed to store tires standing up on the tread. It puts the tires out-of-round.
