I've used the Belden wires from NAPA on my 98.

For better visibility I moved this into a new thread.
According to the Napa site- 2000 Bonny= Belden Part Number is: BEL 700042
NAPA AUTO PARTS
I used NGK and are more than please with them, years of good service so far.

Hope this helps!

I have a brand new set of Belden wires for a Bonneville in the box at home and will check tonight and will post the number.

BTW- RockAuto has a fantastic clearance on some high end Bonneville plug wires going on, OEM set for under $26, quality name brands for under $15. The Belden set Art mentioned is on clearance for @23 at RockAuto, I paid over $50 for the set at a Napa dealer in 2008.

Thanks. I've already Visited NapaOnline and Say The Wires They Have are 7mm, I Was Looking For the 8mm Blue One everybody is Talking About, But The Only 8mm Wire I Saw Was The Same One Labeled For 8Cyl Engines.
And Those NGK'* Aren't They Made in Japan/China? Have You every Tested The Resistance On Their Wires? Or is it Listed On The Packaging?
Although I Bought Blue Mag Stainless wire Set From ABC Direct That Boasted Of approx 800 Ohms per foot, I Haven't Tested It Yet, But I Will, Best Of all Its Made in The US Of A!. Just Looking For An Extra Pair For My Impala, That'* Different That I Can Compare With.

Please Do Check And Inform Me, Before I Purchase.
I Saw The Belden there As You Said For $23, But Its The 7mm, I Found it On Their Site (Although For $32.20). But Still I'm On the Hunt For The Blue 8mm Ones.
I Know it might sound a little bit too ambitious for a Darn Plug Wires, But I'm Looking To Get The Best Ones With The Least Resistance For The $$.

If you look at the bottom left of photo on white label, the NGK'* also are made in the USA.
Cant remember if I did test them or not, was a few year ago now that I installed them.
Have about 40k miles on them now, & still running strong, close to the 3 year mark today.
NGK Site states: Most 8mm wires in the aftermarket are merely providing additional insulation, and do not increase the electrical capabilities of the ignition system.
