What materials are best to use for a signal fire?

Answer A signal fire should use anything you can burn that will put smoke in the air including tires. (As long as you aren't wasting valuable survival supplies best used for something else.)

Its survival, (have I mentioned that?) and anything goes really. A burning tire is horrible for the environment but if your rescuer notices the black smoke, it might be good for your future life.
