I havent started designing my car yet, but I gave some thought to the wheel skirt problem for the front. I was thinking of having a flexible fabric of some sort and have a guide bar that was attached around the wheel to the steering mechanism, that would push the fabric clear of the wheel during turns.

Once I get my copy of SolidWorks I will try and draw up something for you to see. (Probably about two months out still, upkeep on my car just set me back $900)
