NGK ILZKR7D8 vs Denso or others #5437173 05/24/20 03:04 AM

I'm looking at replacement for the factory plugs on the Suzuki Vitara 1.0T

The owner's manual states that replacement is NGK ILZKR7D8. I have no real problem with NGKs, but I have some affection towards Denso (especially their Iridium Power series, but that's another story). The equivalent at Densos is VXUHC22G, and, contrary to NGKs, those Densos are available at the local parts store.

Is there any cons using the Densos ?

Shouldn't be. Denso's are a fine plug.

In general I choose a Denso over a NGK anytime I find better wear not that NGK are bad Iā€™d use with confidence just be my second choice.

Denso Iridium Tough's are fine to use. the iridium tip may be smaller on the denso's than the NGK's though
