Default Spark Plugs

I'm looking at changing the spark plugs on my 08 Canyon. What is better the Platinum or Iridium type plugs.

Iridium...IMO I installed the AC Delco iridium a couple thousand miles ago and they really woke the truck up !! I think from 2006 and up the OEM plugs are iridium...

They're both good, but Iridium is better, and like Tweek said, in the 2006MY they started coming with the iridium plugs from the factory.

How many miles on your truck? The stock plugs on your truck are good for 100k.

On my 04 I changed them at 65k and boy did those things look worn.

I went with the iridium plugs they work the best.

Yeah, but the 06+ trucks got the iridium plugs rather than platinum, plus they're made by NGK instead of Delphi (at least for the inline engines, I think the V8s are Densos)....both of which are improvements, though I'd imagine the manufacturer change is more significant than the material change...

You may want to just pull them out and have a look at them before replacing them, you're still plenty far away from the actual change interval (just over halfway there), so they should still have plenty of life left in them. May save you some money to take a look at them prior to replacing them.

(I'm assuming that's 95,000 km, not 95k miles....)
