Default iridium spark plugs

Looking for a little help. Does anyone know if it would be OK to put Iridum spark plugs in a basic 2007 PT Crusier? If it is OK, what spark plug wires would U recommend?

Welcome.
Yes, no issue with irridiums. Gap at 0.040 (CAREFULLY).
For wires, avoid stock ones. The Mopar high performance are acceptable. I've heard Autolite, Magnecore, ... I have Crane, but they aren't made any longer...

Default I like your user name.

have any interest in Walwolfs and Vampires? Or is it just about your ride? What is your take on NGK wire, and should I say with 7mm?

I have no clue what a Walwolf is.
Quicksilver is a nickname for the element mercury - I like the color silver.
Some feel bigger is better, it depends on how long you want them to last.

NGK Iridium plugs are the best IMHO - Here's a good deal on Granatelli wires - also the best bang for the buck IMHO...

Don,

Walwolves are Werewolves that only come out during the full moon and only appear at you local 24 hour Walmart.

Vampires are bloodsuckers and sometimes pose as Attorneys.

Both are negatively affected by silver.

Iridium plugs are usually gapped at .028-.032. Be very careful when you gap them. I run the stock copper plus plugs in my '05 350 hp SRT-4. I don't need any expensive plugs when the stock copper plus do the trick and make my car run extremely well. To each his own I guess.

All the more reason to like silver!

I'm not into werewolves, vampires, death panels or made-up crap like that. There's enough reality to deal with.

OK, I miss spelled WEREWOLVES. I have no idea why I spelled it that way, I do know how to spell it. Moving on. I would not be looking to get better parts if my car ran well. I can't afford the pricey wires U mentioned, but like U said "to each hs or her own". I have seen more women in PT's then men. So now that we know I can't afford wires for a couple hundred dollars, how about a good affordable set of wires?

I read time and time again that the iridum should be gapped at .040. Why do U think the gap should be smaller?
