The wheels are going to present to the airflow, no matter if inside or outside. I'm thinking that a narrower flat bottom, with a higher, narrower flat floor at the rear ( see drawing) might be just as aerodynamic as a level flat bottom without wheels. There will both be inner fender skirts to dirrect the airstream away from the wheels, and outer fender skirts to keep the air from curling under the edge and into the wheels. The areas between the outer and inner skirts could be side storage.
