I'd rather put something that mice do not like near the car, than stuff they like! Or do as I do, get your car rust proofed with tectyl / dinitrol / PAVA or whatever the American application is. It's a thick oil like liquid / material that's sprayed onto the car. It's very sticky and makes working underneath the car a bit annoying, but it keeps animals away and it stops them from hiding near / under it. They also won't chew into the car, as it's technically rat poison in an oil / liquid format. Does tend to leave a smell inside the car when it's not ventilated though, got to ventilate it to get it away (by opening your windows or putting your ventilation on).
On another note, I'll agree with rumb on the other point. Nothing will happen with your tires as long as they are inflated to the proper pressure and that you roll it a bit forwards and backwards every 1-2 months or so. The tires on my car are a bit square from sitting, but I believe it had been sitting for more than 2 months on a solid piece of road.
