small margin between div's even when margin is set to 0?

I am doing a little project and just wondering why these div's are behaving in this way? If you look at:

http://www.thornabytyres.com you will notice I have made a red box that is made from two div's the first div is for the red area and the second div for the white, any idea why there is a very faint 1 pixel line between them and how I can remove them? Even with margin set to 0 in my CSS it wont go, I could nudge the second div up but I'd like to know why it is doing this? Thanks!

It's because their display is set to inline-block. Inline block elements have a space if there is white space in your HTML for some strange reason ... check here for an explanation (http://css-tricks.com/fighting-the-space-between-inline-block-elements/).
