Self adhesive laminate floor tile

Purchased a home and just ripped up carpetin livingroom.  Apparently they had a dog with potty issues because the subflooring is stained.  I need to do this inexpensively until i can get the floor of my dreams. I know you can't put the tiles on kilz because of the adhesive but couldn't i use kilz and top with a latex paint that the tiles will adhear to?

Hello Baycitybarbie.  Welcome to the Community!

Yes, you can prime and paint the subfloor and then tile over it if you wish.  My main concern would be to make sure the subfloor is sealed against the pet odors.  The old standard for this would be to use a shellac based primer like BIN.  Kilz makes a water based primer called Kilz Max which should also do a fine job and clean-up with soapy water makes it easier to use.  I would avoid cheaper primers that may not seal out the odors.  Cover with a floor paint like Behr Premium Porch and Patio Floor paint.
