To be truthful, gold is the best conductor for electronic components, but who can afford gold core spark plugs. Plus they would not last long in their true form. The problem with silver, it is a soft metal like gold and could burn out quicker. Not saying they are worthless, but I would go with copper before silver any day. That is if I did not put the OEMs in it.

I have 100,000+ on my 08, with the original plugs. Time for a tune up soon.
