Big troubles when assembling parts with tangent mate

Hi all,
I am currently working on a project for my garage door needing a wheel and a kind of rail for the path of the wheel.
In order to simulate the overall assembly I used (for the first time) the tangent mate relation. However it is a complete failure : the wheel just make weird rotation without even touching the surface path i asked...
Here is a link of a simplified assembly I made where the same problem occurs. After having followed several tutorials i wonder where is my mistake !


Have you ever encountered this kind of problem ?
