Move everything to one side & paint the other. When it cures, move your junk to the other side . . . takes twice as long, but at least your stuff isn't outside.

Heat from a car's tire will generally make the paint peal.
I used rustoleum (home depot) after reading about all the dire warnings of "hot tire pick up" (living in AZ we hear a lot of it). After almost 10 years of parking a 7,000 pound truck on it in Tucson- I'm convinced that it isn't an issue if you follow the destructions on the box. Sure, it won't last as long or look as nice as some of the better quality products out there - but having it peel off due to a hot tire just doesn't seem to be an issue. Mine lost the luster a few years ago, and a few spots are getting kind of thin (mainly where I drag shit across it), but for the price - it was a solid deal. It's not like my garage is a showroom or anything . . .
Price is soon forgotten, quality is not.
