Start of by getting some photos of tyres (Google Image Search: Car Tyre (, 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 :)
