spark plug gap?

i noticed different info on here and on parts websites.
I bought Autolite Iridium plugs, on Rock Auto it said gap was .035" (I didnt look at the decal underhood). But for other plugs it says .044".
Which is right?
If I hav been runnin the plugs for about 1k miles is it ok to regap them?
Thanx

Typically its best to stick with the OEM brand and part #. I would not recommend those plugs personally. You may have problems when you change them. Keep the originals in case for now.
