Best spark plug and tap for stock tune?

my car is approaching 50k miles and I want to be proactive and change the plugs and coil packs. I drive the car hard, at tracks and canyons, so not sure if that matters. I also may get a tune down the line but not now.

Should I just get the two step colder plugs now? I keep hearing good things about the ngk 97506 plugs. Or just stick with oem?

Also, what two should I run?

Thanks!

Go with OEM, when you start tuning you may want to look at other plugs gapped to what your tuner recommends.

If you're stock, keep the sparks OE

To mirror what everyone else has already said, keep the OEM plugs if not tuned.
