Spark plugs and wires

Picked up my 97 cobra a month ago. I'm pretty sure it still has the same spark plug wires on it from the factory. And I have no clue when the last time the plugs have been changed. I was thinking about changing them both at my next oil change. Sound like a good idea? Or should I just leave them be? And the owner before me changed the oil with 5w-20. Should I use that again or go to the what I believe the factory recommend of 5w-30? Any tips?

Yes. I would change the spark plug wires and, at least, pull out a spark plug, or two, and inspect them. I would think that, all of the tune up items should be done at that mileage, or checked anyways. Including, cleaning the Throttle Body and MAF sensor, changing the fuel filter, clean or replace the PCV valve, inspect all of the hoses and belts, and anything else that you can think of!

And either one of those oil weights is fine to run in your engine.
