Default Ignition wires

Has anyone ever used Taylor 8mm Spiro Pro Series wires on their car? Wondering how they fit and if you've noticed any difference on a L67?

there have been some members that have had major problems with the Taylors, some have gone through 3-4 sets and have not found a good set. BUT there have been others that have great times with the Taylors. I would stay away from the Taylors personally
you wont notice a difference in a set of wires, you only bring back performance that you have lost during the years

Stick with AC Delcos. I've had the best luck with them.

Ya, I don't like the fact that I would have to crimp one end on to install. Factory crimps seems better to me for reliability. Thanks for the heads up guys!

You don't have to crimp the ends if you buy them pre-made for our cars. Any of the Grand Prix sets are identical for ours.

www.grandprixstore.com

But I've had 3 bad sets. As stated, others have had good luck, but I'll never buy another set from them.

ANY premium wire from the local store, other than Bosch.

I've found The LIfetime warranty Beldens from Autozone to be EXACT to The Taylor Spiro pro i bought 1.5 years ago.

I would not be happy about changing wires within 2 years. Hmmmm only time I've really changed wires was when I first picked up a car.

As per my "holy gopher post" I notice 2 of my wires in the front were chewed through to the core thus the need for replacement. I have a set of acdelco 8mm on it now so I think I'll get another set from the local dealer! Thanks for all your remarks!
