spark plug (ignition) wires

Assuming I cannot get the OEM red Mopar plug wires pryed off the plugs, what kind of plug wires should I be considering? I looked at 3 brands:

1)Bosch black 7mm OEM style $15.00
2)Prestolite red 7mm OE equivalent $26.00
3)Taylor red 8mm OEM style $25.00
All plug wire sets have a 1yr warranty ( I found these sets on drivewire.com)

Note: I do NOT do any off-road driving...just highway & city. I just want plug wires that are durable & delivers a good consisent spark plus ignition noise suppressed.

I am open to all suggestions/advice. Thanks in advance for your input.

Accell 8mm Super Stock, Yellow, Suppression Core.

They work great, but you gotta crimp them yourself. (cut to desired length)...

Just to show ya, I have used them on my Jeep and cut and crimped them myself.

Taylors are generally good. The wires should be replaced every 30,000 miles along with the plugs, dizzy cap and rotor anyway.

plugs

installed the plugs & wires last week. I chose nkg plugs (v power) and autolight wires. They work very good together. The jeep has more pep and I believe the mpg has improved a little. However, there is still a miss in the engine....just like before the installation...wonder what it could be??
