Spark plugs

My dealership tried to talk me into plugs with a 30k service. Should I change my plugs at 30k? I'm going to do it myself and what's the best plug everyone is using?
Thanks

Mother of god no.

the OLD hemi's required plugs every 30k.. since the 6.4 Has come out they require plugs every 96k Read the owners manual on maintenance schedule.

They are not copper they are iridium's Which is why they last so long.

That's what I thought and was wondering why the advisor would ask such a question. I only asked them to do the transfer case and they tried to sell me everything. It's not even listed on the 30k schedule. Maybe they're just used to all other cars and don't deal with many SRTs.

No probably just a crooked dealer unfortunately. All hemi's since 2014 have been 100k spark plugs 5.7 and 6.4
