Anyone have feedback on NGK Ruthenium Plugs

Driving a 05 V6 Sport - not extreme conditions, except occasional Baja desert and LA traffic. 200k on engine w/one rebuild (prior owner must not have maintained). Otherwise going w/NGK or Denso Iridiums when I change my Amsoil Signature.

The Rutheniums don't seem to be in wide distribution, but curious nonetheless. Thanks

Hmm... you've caught my attention! I will have to check these out.

I'll say it now though, you'll not see any improvement on a stock naturally aspirated engine. These 4Runner eat spark plugs due to having a waste spark system so it's best to stick with the recommended plugs in your owners manual or service manual.

Funny
I have a 2012 Genesis and it is time to the change plugs (a task within itself!!). These came up on RockAuto as SUPERIOR plugs. I think I will try them. Thank you for posting this as it reminded me it is time.

I did this spark plug exercise at one point... iridiu this, long life that, plus mounds of reading and overthinking spark plugs.

Ultimately I just defaulted back to the owners manual. I decided to keep it simple and just use what they recommend.

It might not be exciting, but it works, and I have the piece of mind of not trying to reinvent the wheel on my own.
