How would you all add shelving or hang something from a square tube metal garage? The supports are 5ft on center.

what's it gotta hold? If it needs to hold a lot of weight look for some pallet racking. Otherwise, I'd build free standing shelves using 4x4 legs, 2x4 and 7/16 osb shelves. hat'll hold quite a bit. You can then tie them into the building supports with a few bolts so they don't tip over. that'd be the easiest thing to do.

+1 for free standing shelves. That way you don't have to rely on the walls to hold the weight. I have a little of both. Liquids I hold on the wall mounted ones. The freestanding ones hold the heavy stuff - metal parts, tires, etc.
