Aurelio,To do this you will have to draw a polygon in Gmax and then add a texture that has transparency alpha channel in it to simulate tyre marks. This is how the payware people do it.

Thanks for the reply Max,and if I may probe the subject a bit further, to add dirt marks to most of the taxiways and aprons of a medium airfield would it be easier to make the polygon the size of the entire airport or make separate smaller ones for different areas?Once again thanks for taking time,Aurelio.
