Rough idle, engine sputtering coming out of turns and acceleration

Been having issues with sputtering while accelerating and coming out of turns. Bought new plugs and swapped them with the old ones. Here's what they looked like coming out. What do you think guys?

Looks like normal spark plug wear. Mine were the same when I changed them recently at 36k.

It look quite white to me with deposits on it. Maybe the flash doing it.

Have you any codes especially O2 sensor related since they control the fuel mixture.
