If you epoxy, get the professional grade stuff. Devoe Devran Epoxy held up on the high volume shop floor just fine (impervious to anything with the exception of letting a puddle of brake clean sit on it overnight), and is about $100 a gallon (1 gallon epoxy, 1 gallon converter). 2 gallons of each should do most basic 2 car garages. We abused the heck out of that floor in an automotive environment. After 3 years of high volume use, I re-epoxied it so it would bring back the clean look, lol.

I used the home depot rustoleum stuff on my garage floor at home (I had a few sample cases sitting there, so figured I would save some money), looks good, but my wife's jeep has already peeled the epoxy up where the tires sit. It was properly prepped etc. I will be redoing it this summer with the stuff we used at the shop instead.
How did you prepare floor? Its all in preparation.

I think that people who have issues with hot tire peeling is that they dont etch concrete properly. If you are using acid etch make sure to wash it afterwards with pressure washer. Regular house water pressure cant remove what etch broke down. It makes huge difference and takes 2hours just to do this part on 2 car garage. One inch at the time. Ive done couple of these epoxy diys from home depot (water based) without any issue yet. Some already last more than 5 years and not a single peel. Only thing thing to mention is little discoloration from sun. I also used clear on top of the epoxy for that nice shiny wet look, which also adds extra strenght to the application. Cost me $250 for 2 car garage including everything.
If you want it to be even more durable , you can buy rustoleum (professional) solvent based from amazon. Its few bucks more expensive and 3-4 times thicker.
Applys exactly the same.

Easy Swisstrax tiles. I have had epoxy, Racedeck and Swisstrax. By far the best is tiles and Swisstrax.

I had epoxy professionally done in my old shop at my last house...toughest stuff ever.
I cant wait to get it done again. It cost 3grand but totally worth it, no spill ever marked that floor.

For gargag, epoxy floor paint is very best for them. It is economical for customer. But you need conduct in summer. It is a shunsine, not rain. You should choose son epoxy benzo floor paint.

I know this is an older post but I was looking for some custom garage examples for a refresh of my garage. I personally chose to order my tiles from https://modmyfloor.com because of the value. The quality of their samples and the price was stellar. I chose the Drain thru tiles because they would allow spills and debris to be hidden but had a flat surface for my creeper. They also have great sales on the major holidays!
