Where do i buy spark plug wire?

I know that all i need is the wire and that the caps screw off but i can't for the life of me find where to buy just the wire.

I think i remember seeing that i need 10mm wire. I tried using the search function but i get way too many unrelated hits.

I buy it in bulk... 7mm, you can go up to 8mm, but not 8.5 mm...

Stock are 7mm, yes...but you can go a slight larger by wigglin/twistin em in...

My last set....I wanted blue, and nobody local had em, and i cant do mail order....so i went to a local scrap yard, found the newest Ford (blue wires), paid $1 for all I needed....thats how we did stuff back in the day, or we'd have a shop order em for us....I need red ones now...trip to Specht's...what cars got red wires ????....Mopars ?

Mopar is Grey... Red is european (i think)... just look around the bone yard, I am sure you will find something.. another option is to jsut get some sparkplug wire loom in the color you want from your local parts store.. IIRC its like 10 bucks for a 15 foot roll.
