Spark plugs

Plug stuff...
Before I get jumped for not reading, I have perused the section in the sticky post
Just a quick question for confirmation or to be corrected. Here are 2 pics of my plugs 20k miles on them.
Thanks Sox

Electrodes look nice and tan - you should be happy with those.

I would say that the discoloration on the ceramic is the gap that is not covered by the plug wire end.

It's called corona stain. It'll be okay.

Thanks for the info and link.
Of-course being on the beach would 'Corona' stain them

Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.
