I would probably go with a very thin wire and attach choc and brown sugar drops to it. I would do rows of several of them coming out at different levels from the tire. Please post pic of what you end up doing!

Last night an instructor was showing how to make whitecaps on water. She used blue piping gel for the water, and pastry pride whipped topping for the waves. It looked like real wave caps. I assume you could do the same for flying dirt.

Make 'waves' of dirt coming from the wheels of the truck, then mix crushed nilla wafers or something like that and make 'whitecaps' only they'd be dirt caps.

I know that's a horrible explanation. The only cake pic I could find on line to illustrate is pretty pitiful too (the method, not the cake): http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1754056
