Does anyone here have any experience with these wires?

Seems like a little over kill and expensive. Check here for good set of wires...

I found the exact same set at Amazon for $56.00.Anytime you buy from JC Whitney you're usually paying top dollar. I go there see what I want then hit the net for cheaper prices.

A 5mm wire? Dude, the stock wires are 7mm, and unless you make changes to the rest of the ignition system, and are running boost or NOS, and set of Motorcraft 7mm replacement wires will do more than you will need.

Motorcraft wires are the best you can get.
