NO,NO,NO........
Call "Ultra RV" Brazel's and get their plugs AND wires !!!!!!!!
Have your year, make, model, and VIN handy.
Changing plugs and wires is an easy DIY job from underneath.

Your engine will thank you !
Take it from someone who's done this.

Now do yourself a favor. Go to your local auto parts store and buy a tube of "silicone di-electric grease. Put a liberal amount of grease in the boot on each end of the spark plug wires. This will ward off corrosion and make the wires much easier to remove when you need to replace spark plugs again.

The Magnum wires from URVP come with silicone dielectric grease.

Reuse the stock heat shield for each wire.

I like the AC Delco 41-101 Iridium spark plugs also from URVP.

Most wire sets come with a little packet with a small amount of silicone di-electric grease but it's normally too little grease to get a good coat of grease on each terminal and boot of every wire. Down the road at sometimes the OP may want to replace spark plugs again. The liberal application of the grease will make the plug wires come off the plugs much easier and there is less chance of damaging a wire while trying to pull it off the plug. Besides this the grease acts as a moisture barrier and helps keep corrosion away from the plug wire ends and the plug terminals.

You're right. Some additional grease is a good idea. Plus it's nice to have a tube of Dielectric grease handy for other electrical connections on the coach.

Just another vote for the Magnum Extreme plug wires from Ultra RV products, I've had mine since 2017 and they are still holding up great after burning through a set of $140 Taylor Extreme plug wires in under 10,000 miles

Excuse my ignorance, but I've never understood how a grease that does not conduct electricity can be a good thing to put on electrical connections? Can someone explain this to me?

I had the same question, so I searched for more info. Here is one quote that explains it.

"There is a myth floating around that putting dielectric grease into electrical connections can cause them to fail because the grease gets between the metal. Thatís not true.

Although the dielectric grease does insulate the metal and wiring from external invaders, the contacts are tight enough to still maintain a connection, the grease is just displaced. That said, you do not need to squirt huge globs of dielectric grease into your connectors as you see in some videos out there."
