Default Which brand spark plugs wires? opinions please

I'm doing a scheduled tune up on my 93 SE and am wondering what brand spark plug wires people are using. Opinions welcome! Share your experience if you like

I have Kragren, Autozone, Napa, PepBoys nearby.

Here are some of the brands they offer:

Autolite
Bosch
Delco
Duralast
Valucraft
more...

I'm not necessarily looking for performance plugs, just something that wont crap out on me a year from now. Thank you!

Autolite - Ok.
Bosch - NO NO NO.
Delco - Yes, OEM
Duralast - NO.
Valucraft - NO.

In my opinion, go to Napa and get the Napa Belden "Blue" wires. By far the best ones and they have a lifetime warranty.

As for plugs, go with NGK, Autolites, or ACDelcos. DO NOT even think of using Bosch, they do not jive well with our waste spark system.

I've had problems with 2 sets of napa beldens breaking. but if you lube them up and save the receipts, you are fine. Even with the problems I've had with the beldens I'd still say they are worth it. Just remember to grease them up good.

OEM are fine as well.

Best brand I know of that I've used are Autolite Professionals, but Delcos are good too. I can't personally recommend or say anything about the rest.

Napa Belden all the way here! I've had my wires for 3 years now, motor runs silky smooth and perfect. Lot of people cannot believe how good my motor runs.

They are still flexible and as soft as the day they came out of the package.
