My 1989 Camry had the same plugs (platinum) and wires until I traded @ 190k miles.

This is my wife's car. She does a lot of driving and the car has been very reliable. I think the paint job could be better, but engine and transmission have been great. In 47000 miles, we've changed brakes, oil changes and tires. Not bad!
