Default Garage Floor Paint

What is a good garage floor paint, that won't come up with the tires when you move the model A. or is there such a paint. I used to paint the show room floor and if a tire set on it a week when moved the paint would come up with it. I'm sure there are better paints now. thanks

I used a 2 part epoxy paint from home depot. Just be sure that the cement is preped correctly of no paint will stick.

I prefer floor tiles (racedeck in my garage) to paint. I've had bad luck getting paint to stick to garage floors--part of that is probably that older floors can require extensive prep to get the paint to adhere.

If you can find it on sale, tile can be had for around $0.50 a sq. ft, makes standing for long periods easier on your feet, and is removable.

Just my two cents

The key to floor paint is surface prep. After my two part epoxy didn't hold up I layed down a one piece rubber coin flooring. Works great for me
