Porcelain Garage Tiles?


Aside from plastic or rubber, does anyone know of what tiles are used on a garage floor? I've heard that porcelain tiles are used because they are stronger and the color is throughout the tile. Does anyone know what works best and who might make them?

Thanks

It's actually done quite a bit in high-end garages.

When was the last time you went to a car showroom?, they're all tiled, done every day, as londg as the slab is correct under them, use a good porcelain or any ceramic with a PEI rating of 4 or 5, 5 is better and have 100% thinset coverage, not a problem, you can drive a tank over them as long as the substrate of concrete is thick enough.
