Pictures would be great.

Tar? Tire bits? We can't really recommend anything without knowing what you're trying to get off.

Bug and tar remover, or sometimes some Quik Detailer will do good work if you let it sit for a few secs. Get some mud flaps

Most likely a tar&bug remover will take it off. Wash the area first to remove loose debris then follow the direction the tar&bug remover (some say to wet the area first) letting it dwell for the rec time then lightly scrub with a Safe Scrub Bug & Tar Pad from Pinnacle, or Diamondite's Zip Sponge Bug & Tar Remover(both found on AutoGeek), or something similar. If using a bug sponge and APC/degreaser(dilute properly to make paint safe) will assist in removing the black stuff. A lot of times while washing the car and that area is wet spray some diluted APC on the "black stuff" and lightly scrubbing with a microfiber will remove whatever is there(never use a contaminated microfiber on clean paint). Always try a second application before moving on to a more aggressive product if the first try doesn't work.
Anytime you use something more aggressive than car soap/shampoo to clean something off your paint always reapply wax/sealant to that area, if not the whole car if it needs it.
