Flow Over Rotating Wheel Simulation

As part of my research, I wish to investigate the effects of adding a rotating wheel in an Ahmed body or a production vehicle to understand how it affects the flow underneath the vehicle.

However, there aren't many sources that teach how to do that.

Could anyone point me in the right direction please in terms of setup of the simulation, boundary conditions and etc?

for rotating wheel, you may need to go with sliding mesh approach. 

but i am not sure how it will be used when wheel is touching the ground. 

experts may comment on this.
