Default Spark plug wire difference

So I finally picked up all the spark plugs I need to do a plug change and I was thinking of changing the spark plug wires as well so I can clean up the engine bay.

Since I have kind of a green theme going on I wanted to get green shorty wires to tie into my theme. I found a set of green wires but I cant tell the difference between them and one other kind of wire. Maybe you guys can tell me what that difference is.

funny guy here!

I noticed that haha but there is something different besides the length and I can't figure out what it is.

I tried looking online and one thing said that the 8.2mm wont mess with electronics and the 8mm will. But then another said 8mm wont and 8.2mm will. I'm hoping someone who has a little more experience with these can chime in and maybe explain the difference

The 8mm wires are 350 ohms / ft. (reduces engine 'whine' in the radio) and the 8.2mm wires are only 40 ohms / ft. which will be a hotter spark (less resistance = more voltage) but at the cost of (possibly) noise in the radio.

Are any of the ones mentioned above better than the others? I feel like there's so many options and I can't figure out which one is the pest for the performance of my truck

The 10.4mm give the highest voltage and lowest ohms plus they are as thick as a battery cable. Taylor part#98010....http://www.summitracing.com/parts/tay-98010

Thanks 05Ram!

Is that what the best option is? Something with high voltage and low ohms? And this won't mess with my electronics will it?
