Is there any good way to route these wires so they dont touch anything ??

Use AC delco wires ??
The factory wires are Delco, so the correct answer is to use those.

On my last tuneup I used Autolite plugs/wires on my Bonne and they are fantastic and a little bit cheaper. Completely up to you.

You don't still have the factory wire clips?

Nah, they're fine. If you're really worried, wrap them in heat tape first.

My ole Park Ave really appreciated some iridium plugs and I used NGK wires, fit perfect.
Such a smooth idle after throttle body & Iac cleaning and new fuel filter, So many things get neglected when doing a tune up..

I bought those exact same NGK wires and I really like them. They look nice too.

Man, if my car was black or silver I'd love to have those. I think I'm gonna have to either loom my current ones or go with Summit/MSD wires to get some red under my hood.

If you want some carbon core 8.5mm in red (the best) check these out...
They may not fit into stock wire loom clip holders as they are thicker than stock, but I have used these superior wires before. If I remember they were $65 for the set and the quality was superior to anything I have ever seen before, radio suppression superior too.
You can order wire loom clips from them for the 8.5mm (not included with wires set I dont think)
Never have to worry about replacing the wires again with these.
