Default NAPA plug wires

I am told by a reliable source that the NAPA plug wires (Belden) are as good as Crane and MSG. Any thoughts?

Years ago, Belden was a respected brand - haven't heard of them lately.
Odds are good they are better than the stock wires.

I ended up order some Accel performance wires. Hope that wasn't a mistake.

If they are from the old Belden Wire and Cable Company I would put them up against anything of the same type.When I was in the 2-way radio business I used their products for years and would not accept substitutes.If another company has bought the name , all bets are off....

Just installed a set of Belden wires from NAPA (700111). One of the wires would not click on to the plug because the terminal was crimped too high in the spark plug boot...got replacement from NAPA no problem. Have run the wires along with new Champion 7570 plugs for several days now...throttle response seems more crisp than with OEM plugs and wires. There was also a misfire issue that hasn't returned.
