spark plug wires... which one?

its time to change my plugs and wires and i know there are different size wires you can get.... 8, 8.5, or 9mm. i was just wondering if there was much of a difference between sizes and if anyone had any suggestions. thanks.

Re: spark plug wires... which one?

i'm still waiting on my 9mm wires from gefracing. if 8.5 was any cheaper i would have gone with those but they were the same price so i got the 9's. i don't think size matters much on a stock engine and ignition system.
i was told that the coil inside isn't thicker in a 9mm, it's just the layering around it is thicker to protect from the spark jumping across to the adjacent wire. maybe someone else can correct me and elaborate more on it.

unless you have a very high performance engine the regular ones will perform just as good as any. Since the high performance ones are the same price.... pick some in a pretty color

JBA wire sets are good.

That's what I am running.

Re: spark plug wires... which one?

Is there any problem with me buying some and then painting them with engine enamel? Because i cant find any wires that are green.... i guess i could always go with chrome...
