Can any recommend any rubber floor tiles for garage use? They will have a car stood on them too so need to be pretty tough. Cheers.

There's a lot of choice here:

I think anything rubber with a car on it is likely to deform. Those plastic tiles that you can get (That the race teams use) are very good but expensive. Costco do a roll of thick plastic (Silver I think) in the style of checker plate

I paneled mine out in ply with insulation below and it provides a much warmer surface to work on as well as being (A little) more friendly to knees and clothing.

At work we have used second hand conveyor belting, seriously hard wearing and comes in various widths and thicknesses, only problem is it's black but you could use a sledgehammer on it.

chris i have a plastic floor and i had my aprilia fall off the front triple tree stand while working on it because it moved. I will have that youtube video up soon on my youtube channel completely destroyed my oilcooler . Now rubber might be different but i love my plastic floor besides this aprilia accident. I am going to a sky jack to work on this bike from now on.
