Start of by getting some photos of tyres (Google Image Search: Car Tyre (http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=car+tyre&btnG=Google+Search)), and then work from there.
For a tyre, I guess the best method of texturing it would be to do a cylindrical unwrap along the appropriate axis, and then use portions of photographs to build up the textures.
Then it's just a matter of tweaking your spec/diff/bump amounts until everything looks right :)
