On that note, here'* what to look for:
Ignition Wires
1-15 in. .................................................. ... 3000/10,000 Ohms
15-25 in. .................................................. .. 4000/15,000 Ohms
25-35 in. .................................................. .. 6000/20,000 Ohms
OVER 35 in. .................................................. 8000/25,000 Ohms

How soon do wires need to be replaced? I have almost 50,000 miles on my car now and I know they've never been done.
Well, took my wife'* '00 in for an oil leak (valve cover) to be replaced under warranty. While they were working on it they took off the wires and said 2 of them were so corroded they broke coming off the coils. Her car has 44K Miles on it. I just ordered a set of taylors and NGX plugs for my '00 but now im thinking i may have to put them on her car. May have to order another set....

Good tip...I have an appointment for next Wednesday to get my tie rod replaced, and I'm going to call ahead and have them order the stuff for the recall, and while I'm at it I'll have them check the wires and plugs.
On a side note, I love this forum...everyone is always looking out for everyone else. (there should be a hug emoticon, but this'll do... ).

The stock wires work fine until over 100,000 miles if you never touch them. But the earlier you remove them, the easier it will be. Usually when you remove them at least one of the wires will break. If you ever plan on changing your spark plugs, change the wires along with them, because you may as well while you have them off.

If your wires aren't worn out, they work fine, new ones aren't going to perform better. There have been tests done, even by spark plug wire companies, that show that there is no difference between the power a 7mm wire makes and the power a 10mm wire makes. As long as the wire is in good enough shape to carry the "spark" you aren't going to get any performance gain from new wires. But they do look cool, and it makes it easier to change because they usually don't break as easily as the stock ones. But if you install a nitrous kit replace your wires just to make sure they are all working properly, and are giving ample spark, just as a safety precaution.
