I'm not sure where there is a tire tutorial, but i knwo there is a tire shader on creative crash that looks pretty real when tweaked a bit. you might download that and dissect it a bit to see how the creater of that shader got the look.

The fresnel effect seems a bit high on that shader. It makes it look dusty...

When you use the shader, make sure you take the fresnel ramp's intensity down a bit.
