You can get away with using Tamiya German Grey made to anything darker by mixing black into it.
You could also try Vallejo Panzer Aces Dark Rubber works ok for aircraft tires
Hope it helps
I actually think the German Gray is already quite dark. Now Im no expert but it should be around German Grey:75+Black:25
here If I was to get just one to try it, the new concrete would be a great all rounder as it will give a dust look to just about anything including the vehicle itself
After painting, I also use Mig pigments mixed into a wash with windscreen washer fluid and wipe off the excess once dry. Check out my Tamiya 6x6 thread for an idea of my results.
Hope this Helps
weathering (definitely not qualified!) but I'd like to reinforce what has already been said about tyre colours. They are not black at full size,just look at your car,nevermind at a smaller scale,taking a scale effect into account. On aircraft I use WEM "tyre black" which is actually a darkish grey as a basis and then weather according to time and place.
