my first comment was refering to the tyres. they dont look like matte rubber, the treads look fine tho.

If you could post a pic of the tyres on their own that might help, as if thats the main aim of the render then it should be right in there as the cars providing a bit of a distraction.

They look ok, but seem a bit "blocky" to the extremities of the tyres.

if you were focusing on the tires, i think i'd render... just the tires. screw the car, you wanna see how the tires look and the car just covers the tires and increases your render times.
