OK, so having looked at your model. You need a much smaller nozzle – .25mm or similar or you need to do some work on your model. With a .4mm nozzle, the gradients of the curve of the tyre wall are too gradual. The printer moves up and out too far each layer, leaving next to nothing underneath for the new layer to stick to. This results in filament being drawn between points instead of clinging to the previous layer.

You can of course print finer wall widths and layer heights, even with a .4mm nozzle, however when doing so, the nozzle is never properly primed and accuracy issues will occur.

Alternatively, flattening off some of those nasty gradients in your tyre walls will mean each layer has sufficient surface underneath it to complete the print well.
