I guess it wasn't a vorsprung duck

Mine passed the MOT too, but had a warning on tyre edge close to legal, on rears
Here we go again D2 eating tyre edges. I had a thought, maybe I need to keep them inflated above 32psi? despite what the fuel cap says?

I keep mine around 38psi which seems to work for me. Iíve got Michelinís all round which are wearing very well after 7k Miles over 2 years. I think I could do another 2 years on these at this rate.
