Cleaning tires

I flip tires from time to time during my workouts. I store them outside, and every time I use them my arms and chest become completely black. Is that normal? Don't get me wrong, I don't mind a little dirt, but this takes some serious scrubbing to get off. I tried pressure washing them, but that didn't help much. Any ideas?

Actually it's a lot of work but you might want to try using a scrub brush and comet power cleaner.
