It only goes up half way, and if you've ever changed a tire, you'll notice that the tire drops down quite a ways when that end of the car is jacked up. In addition, the rubber is pretty flexible considering it doesn't have to bend very much to move outwards.

A professional version of this mod would use some sort of spandex the color of the car, and have a strip going around the outside that would anchor the material and be removable.
