Does anyone have any recommendations on what garage vinyl floor tiles to use, there seems to be a lot to choose from and variations in costs.

Excellent tiles in a range of colours. They have a design tool on there website.
Cost was ok for the quality of material.

Company is mototile.

At the NEC last year there were dozens of companies selling them, there's a lot to choose from. I picked the cheaper 20cm sq ones with edging, got them supplied and fitted them my self, took about an afternoon and a rubber mallet to fit them.
They make a massive difference regarding cold striking through plus you can walk around the floor without picking up all the dust and rubbish.
Only problem is if I park the car in the garage when it's hot the 'cats' cause the tiles to buckle due to the heat so I've had to glue down some reflective material the same as they use behind radiators to try and stop it happening, seems to work.
Mines a double garage and it cost about £550.00.
Pic below.

I have at the moment 6 x 5 mtr tamped finish epoxy coated concrete floor that needs repainting so considered these vinyl tiles as an alternative. Just ordered some samples from www.duramat.co.uk

Similar job on my floor. These are urethane studded tiles glued over a skreeded leveled floor. Really pleased with it. Looks smart and easy to keep clean and spot any trouble.... trouble being fluid leaks.

After looking at the pictures posted tiles look like the way to go..

My tiles came from Plasfloor - Barkley Plastics.

Their web site is very good you can work out what you need and even make up patterns if you want. Just be careful when ordering the yellow edging strip, I sort of misread it and thought I was ordering individual pieces, I wasn't it was in meters so ruddy loads of it turned up but they took it back without a problem.

I'm in the middle of considering option for my garage. My local Ferrari dealer had a new floor put down about 12 months ago and I went back to have a look at it to see how it was holding up. They put down a resin floor system(Sikafloor 264).I was expecting it to show signs of wear but it was in as new cindition
To do my garage I'm at the following options:
Paint. £200
Ceramic tiles £1500 installed
Resin £2000 installed
Paint is out of the equation as it will need doing in 12 months.
Tiles are suitable and hard wearing.
The resin looks like an F1 workshop.
I've got a few weeks before I decide.

Lots of pristine looking garages.

How well do the tiles stand up in a working garage with metal storage racks, axle stands, trolley jacks and other hard points and heavy loads?

The ones I put down are very resilient, they do get marked but are easily lifted up and cleaned. The only thing that bothers mine as I mentioned is heat but once they cool down they go back to shape.

According to their web site they claim they're indestructible in normal use!

I used Ecotile, lifted them to move to another garage and they went back down again without an issue. Very happy with them.

I would go with conventional ceramic floor tiles. much more durable.

No problem at all regarding jacking. The tiles themselves are about 5mm thick and very dense/incompressible... The only time they’ve marked is when I turn a wheel over them. But they clean up fine.

Apart from: They are lethal when wet. Are freezing cold to walk on as opposed to plastic tiles that are not. Plastic tiles can be lifted if moving house. Plastic tiles can be lifted if damaged and replaced with a new one in 5 mins. Ceramic tiles can crack if jacking up heavy weight and can crack if heavy tools are dropped on them. They do look good, so if you want style over substance then go for them.

The comment about tiles being lethal when wet is slightly misleading as it's a case of right tiles for right application. For the garage you need external tiles which have a non slip function to them. For those who use their garage just to store their car and associated bits and pieces, then tiles are fine. If your garage is a workshop then it's worth the step up to resin.
The heat deflection along with water getting under the plastic tiles when you drive in with a wet car would do my head in. But we're a broad church, each to their own.
