    Floor Jack wheels (softer for garage floor)?

    If you go off and Epoxy your garage floor, did anyone get wheels for their floor jacks which dont damage the floor coating? or is it generally durable enough to take the scraping/moving of the jack around the garage?

    Epoxy floor here too. Steel wheels on the jack, but I have carpet squares for under the jackstands.
    A quick sweep beforehand works wonders.
    Ya'll don't know what it's like. Being male, middle class and white.

    My epoxy coating holds up fine unless a wheel catches and drags a rock, screw or similar.

    Duct tape on the wheels?
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons
