Aside from how long the spark plugs actually last (by way of spark performance) the ungawdly sound they make when breaking loose (from an aluminum cylinder head) and the concomitant tearing of the aluminum threads 😐 for ME makes me want to do plugs at 50,000 mi (or at least to check them and to install new plug gaskets for their reinstallation). For me (and YMMV and you may not agree) I reinstall with a spit of engine oil on the threads and go to only 3/4's spec'd torque.
