What spark plugs?

I'm looking to change the plugs on my 2010 Equinox with 70,000 miles at the next oil change in a few months. There are two ones I'm looking at: AC Delco iridium 41108, $17.72 with shipping and after rebate ($2 per plug) for 4 Autolite iridium XP5263, $11.00 with shipping and after rebate ($2.50 per plug) for 4 Thoughts on which one to go with? Never used Autolite before. Not sure if they are as good as AC Delco or not, or if it doesn't matter? Reviews for this particular Autolite on Advance Auto are very good but it seems the reviews are all for Chrysler vehicles.

Autolite are the universal American model plug. They have just about as many love / hate opinions as Fram. I have used them before with no issues. This is a half-dozen one or the other deals. Can't go wrong with OE but if you are price conscious then go with the Autolite.

You can't go wrong with any iridium. I would go with OEM. Took a set out of my daughter's Chevy Malibu Maxx with 110,000 miles on them and they looked brand new!

I recently installed Champion 7981's in a Ford Zetec 2.0 and even though they were double platinum like the OE and recommended by Champion the car ran terrible and threw a code. I took them out and installed the OE Motorcrafts (AZFS-32FE's) and the car was back to normal. The moral of the story is run OE plugs when possible.

This. What brand came with the vehicle from the factory? Use those.

Go with the ACDelco plugs. On newer cars, many ACDelco plugs are simply NGK plugs with an ACDelco logo on them. Because of that, see if an NGK is sold at a cheaper price.

I used to think the same thing, but, I now think that NGK (or Denso, for some apps) actually makes a much more app specific plug (closer to the GM specs/'needs') for AC Delco than the one the NGK (or Denso) charts show for a specific application. shrug
