Default 1/4" or 3/8" wire loam for plug wires

gonna order some hi-temp loam wouldn't the 1/4" fit nicer than the 3/8 " ?

What size wires do you have?
7mm wires, would probably be ok for 1/4"
8.5mm wires will need 3/8"

CVC where are you ordering the wire loom from?

The split black wire loom that came factory on my plug wires measures about .350” inside close to 11/32”inside.
So that means GM at one time used one size between ¼ and 3/8.

Wonder if any one still sales this in between size split loom?

The cheap stuff at AutoZone I dont care for. I will probably get 3/8" because I have stock AC wires
