I'd recommend going with platinum spark plugs so that you change them less often. Once every three years or so if you feel like it. I run coppers in everything, and in that case you can go with any brand.

My preferred brand of plug wires is AC Delco because they have a lifetime replacement warranty, and you don't need a receipt unlike with another manufacturer or two.
