    NGK V Power – TR55
    NGK G Power Platinum – TR55GP
    NGK Laser Platinum – PTR5C-13
    NGK Irdium IX – TR55IX

    With all due respect to the gentleman from the south (FBM ), I can't recommend Autolite plugs. Had issues with the 104s in Mary's car. Replaced them with NGK 4177s on Marty's recommendation and all was well. Maybe I just got a bad batch, but fool me once...

    I had no problems with mine. They looked slightly used when I swapped them out.

    BTW: I change my plugs every two years regardless of the mileage accumulated, as I do in all my vehicles.
