Omix ADA tune up kit any good?

I need new spark plugs, cap/rotor, and wires. Found an Omix-ADA kit for 60 bucks online. Does anyone know if this brand is any good?

Which plugs are in there? There was a recent thread talking about pros and cons of different types of spark plugs with one brand (can't recall which) which should last like 200k miles.

Omix-Ada is a Chinese owned brand, hard to say what is in their kit which I wouldn't go with. Instead, I would simply buy the parts locally instead of online.

Ask for a distributor cap & rotor with brass contacts which last longer than their cheaper counterparts that use aluminum... which I would bet is what comes in the Omix-Ada kit.

For spark plugs, two 100k mile platium plugs that would be good choices are the Autolite AP985 or the Champion 3034. The 200k mile spark plug mentioned above by WredTJ is the Autolite iridium-tipped XP985.
