anyone use these wires?

I need to change the plugs and wires on both of my cars, and I found these 9mm Stang wires on RPM Mustangs. Has anyone used these wires, and any cons to them over the factory ones?

I still got stock wires, but this is what my buddy told me. He's a manager at a NAPPA, and he swears that the motorcraft wires are the best and most conductive. I would check to see if you can return them after you try them out. You may find stock wires better.

except that with DIS the wire has to clip onto the coil pack Mike.

Those wires would work. FRPP, motorcraft, same difference. Just one is thicker and colored. But they dont give you much of a gain. Not enough to notice.

ford racing wires also last longer than the stock/autozone brand ones.

So the ones in the link on the first post would work, even with DIS? If not, which ones (I'm not really looking for better performance, just something a little better looking than the gray CarQuest ones i've got on there now_

I got the FRPP (in blue of course) from Dan Newman. I paid around $40 something with shipping. These are 9mm wires and fit in the stock looms.

The Parts Bin Special is DEAD! It is being parted out.
