Default Good/Bad Spark Plug Wire Brands

About to change out the spark plug wires and boots (along with plugs). What brands have you had a good experience with? What brands are a no-no?

Mopar ones are the best. 270,000 miles on the wires on my 05 RT Magnum, and 190,000 miles on the ones on my Ram. Nary a problem. I run 180F thermostats to keep underhood temps lower, though.

Impressive, love hearing of the hemis going for that many miles. I was just going to change out the wires and boots as routine maintenance, all cylinders are firing beautifully but now I doubt if I should even change the wires

I second the Taylor shorties. Better spark on the combustion cycle and there's not much benefit at all to the exhaust cycle burn, which is why it went away in 06.
