Rik, I have just got back from a trip up and back the Birdsville track. I took an extra spare wheel, but had no trouble with tyres. Road conditions are good, not much trouble up as far as Mungerannie. After that there are some sand/bulldust patches and some very stony patches, but no trouble if you drive carefully and keep alert.
If you haven't been before, try a "hot tub" at Clayton Wetlands campground 53kms north of Marree, another good camp place with showers and toilets is Mungerannie - down by the wetlands - and an evening in the Mungerannie pub with an excellent dinner and good company is a must.
Don't forget to go to the information centre at Birdsville and the museum.
Have fun.

Rick, road conditons were just updated today. We were in the area ourselves for all of June. We travelled most of the roads around the area and did a double crossing of the Simpson so have done both the Rig Road and the French Line in their entirety just a week ago. Also travelled the Inside Track - its all there.
