Default Think these spark plugs are bad?

Changed the plugs and wires on my brothers girlfriends 06 limited Cruiser. Vehicle has 130k and was misfiring badly. Here are 2 pictures of 2 plugs to give you an example of what the plugs looked like. Vehicle has 130k, could be original..they are champs. I think the gap was too small on them /sarcasm






Put a set of new wires and NGK 5306. Car purs like a kitten.

Wow! I've seen worn plugs before, but those take top prize! These PT's must have some really high voltage coils on them!

I got those beat. But you're closer than the last person that thought they had the worst plugs on the forum. So... Just how big of a gap can the PT spark?
