Yea it'* definately worth the photo (provided you don't drop your camera)
I'd suggest a nice open road, NO CARS, they ruin the shot
and bring along someone you trust to grab the wheel if needed. Also be careful not to drift over the center line (it would look like you were a bad driver
Try different shutter speeds too, if you camera supports it... gives it a type of motion blurr.
Look what you started alien.... now there'* a whole bunch of drivers leaning out the windows with cameras for that great tire shot.
