Under the scheme, Michelin carries out spot checks on vehicles in a company car park, leaving an assessment of tyre wear and pressure on the windscreen. Then after a few weeks Michelin returns and checks if improvements have been made. Spot checks were carried out on Barclays Bank fleet, which is supplied by Dial Contracts. Peter Philpott, Michelin's European car fleets manager, said: 'We checked 65 cars and five weeks later looked at the same cars again and in the majority corrections had been made. Dial buys 57,000 tyres a year and by factoring out our findings across its fleet could save it £600,000 a year through maximising tyre life.
