I recently added 220/240 to my garage shop. I installed a 60A breaker in my main, then ran 6/3 to a newly installed sub panel in my garage. For each of the garage circuits I ran 4 conductors of 10 gauge to each outlet. This allowed me to a) have the ability to have either 20A or 30A service per circuit as I see fit, and b) running a 4th neutral wire for each circuit allowed me to add 120v to each location.
