Also i've been looking at stands and i dont know if a regular stand or a wall mount would be better. (The ceiling in my garage is about 10 feet high so i dont think a ceiling mount would work too well.)
10ft high is fine to mount to the ceiling and that is the best option. I had a bag mounted in my garage to the ceiling which was only 8ft high. The bag was about half a foot lower than it should have ben for me at 6'2" tall.
I'd recommend mounting to the ceiling with that much room for sure
AND, it'll probably cost less than buying either stand which is a bonus
