I like the idea of the splitter, and adding those side plates, vertical plates...whatever they're called, in front of the tires is an amazing idea.
Let's be clear about what we're talking about. Dive planes or wheel spats?

Dive planes for downforce

Wheel spats the block air

My preferred solution would be a shark-fin air curtain:

There should necessarily be a vertical slot But I don't think this 'Vette has one. My poor rendition (lost the original file).
