I think Basjoos' idea of the conveyer belt wheels is brilliant, but I would be worried that the rubbing would eventually wear into the tires.
I know it won't, but it would if I built it !
I've been driving with mine for over a year and a half and over 40,000 miles with no problems with rubbing wear on the tires from the rollers.
