You are right. I was overly focused on epoxy and tile options.

That's sick. Someday I'm going to budget for tire machines.

Stopping for the night. Need to get more shims for the reinforcement plates in the morning. Hoping tomorrow goes well and it is all functioning correctly!

This is awesome!

Curious, how are you properly securing the wheel/tire mounts to the wall?

They are drilled into the studs with 3" lag bolts. The wall will come down with them before they would detach.

Those load spreader plates are huge. They look like there are an inch above the floor. Is there a spacer underneath? I take it your slab is under 4 inches or cracked!

My concrete varies from 4 - 4 1/2" and the minimum stated by the manufacturer was 4 1/2". Just don't want to risk installing it right on the edge of specs. With these plates it reduces the depth requirement to 3". The plates have a 3/4" rail welded around the edge and mates flush with the base of the towers.
