Default Wires: MSD or Bosch, etc?

I'm getting ready to do our plugs and wires this weekend, and was wondering about which wires to get. Locally I can get MSD or Bosch, was wondering which is the better of the two. Or, some other choice. Not really interested in doing mail order, just something I could get at Advance/AZ/Napa/Car Quest.

I'm going to go with Champion DP #7570 plugs, unless there's something better. Car is an '04 non-turbo. Basically it's my wife's car that doesn't get hot-rodded, so no need for racing stuff, lol! Thanks.

Hey Rumble,

I just installed some MSD wires with some double plat. champions and really like them so far. I would personally go with MSD over Bosch. I believe Bosch is only 7mm and MSD are 8mm or sometimes 8.5 and they are probably comparable in price. Have fun!

Anything's better than the Chrysler crap. Don't forget the Anti-seize on the threads of the plugs (gapped at .040in) and Dielectric grease on both ends of the plug wires.

I'll check out a set tomorrow (MSD). Thanks!

Crewzin: I'll be sure to use the anti-seize. I need to pick up some dielectric grease. Thanks for the tip!

MSD, Crane or Magnecor.

Bosch are too much on the OEM side when it comes to quality.

The only place I could order the MSD wires was at Autozone. Got a dummy at the first AZ that was clueless, and couldn't order them. Went to Advance, NAPA and Car Quest, and all they had were el-cheapo wires (yet, too pricey for what they were). Second AZ had someone who had no problem ordering a set. Should have gone there first!

AZ didn't carry the Champion Double Platinum #7570 plugs, but I was able to order them at Advance. Sheesh, these places don't stock much of anything.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

Well, I've been waiting two days for my wire order from Autozone, so I call them to find out what's going on with my wires. They tell me the "order has been cancelled" without any explanation. So now I'm back to square one, and will probably have to order something out of state. I usually try to avoid these half-a$$ McAutoparts stores, but thought this would be rather simple.

I was kinda needing something ASAP, that's why I wasn't going to mailorder anything. The R&S site says the Crane Fanes are no longer available. In any case, I'm going to try a set of the Magstars sold through Advance. They'll be in tomorrow morning. I'm sure they're more than adequate. I bookmarked the R&S site, thanks!

The Bosch premium plug wires have a life time warranty, does MSD? I have had the Bosch wires for 6 years in my 03 GT, and I am very happy with them.
