OEM's are fine. As to misfire, get the OBD2 codes read to ensure nothing else is going on. Avoid amazon & ebay plugs as many are fake parts. Rock Auto and your local dealers will sell OEM parts.

NGK plugs aren't causing a misfire. The problem is elsewhere. These old CR-Vs use the archaic rotor/distributor cap/wire ignition as opposed to coil-on-plug, and over the years I've found that only the OEM wire sets and components will last. (I usually got 75,000 miles out of them.) My last set, though, were NGK wires and they held up fine. Honda may have purchased their wire sets from NGK or Denso anyways. But any familiar auto parts store brand I've used in other Hondas only lasted about 15,000 miles at the most before I'd get misfiring or non-starting. Total garbage.

^^^ those of us with coil-on-plug ignition forget exactly how much of an improvement it was! No distributor anymore, so no distributor o-ring to leak, no cap, no rotor, no wires. Still have plugs though. :)
