Was lights now wire size

Still working on planing on finishing the garage.  A second question if you 
don't mind.  While I am running wire and before I put up drywall I am 
thinking I would like to run (2) 240 volt circuits while the walls are open 
thinking that someday I might purchase some kind of toys that would need 240 
(air comp, welder, ?????).  Since I don't know the amp requirement of this 
future purchase I am unsure as to what gauge wire to run.  # 10 for 30 amp, 
#8 for 40 amp seem to be the ballpark I would need.  Any thoughts on this one?

Thanks again,
Marty Sukey
