To start, I learned driving in Europe. I can park my car in single maneuver in the spot with 4' of clearance.
Besides steep hills where for safety reasons you have to turn your wheels against the curb, there is no reason to move your wheels after parking the car. Remember that moving your wheels on stopped car not only leave flat spots on the tires, but put extreme stress on the steering system. On most of European cars with no PS such maneuver is simply impossible.
So after parking my car on reverse with wheels turned maximum left, I leave it like that. Makes very easy maneuver on pulling out as well.
