Default Is 10mm overkill for spark plug wires on a stock ignition?

I want new aftermarket wires but 10 mm sounds to be overkill on stock ignition.I will be upgrading to MSD soon so maybe I could use them anyway?The car is boosting also if that matters.What should I look for?

stock wires are used on 500hp cars, why would you need to "upgrade"

If you get them in a kit, fine...use them. But don't go out of your way to get some if yours already work fine. Just my opinion.

10mm OMG!!!

i think that 8mm is overkill with a stock ignition system...hell NGK high performance is only 7mm (i think, or last i remember )

stick with stock wire size for stock ignition...

Is it beneficial to run an aftermarket ignition on a boosted setup?I had MSD SCI on my Y8 coupe which was N/A and didn't realy notice a difference besides a little better acceleration and lower gas mileage LOL.I am asking because I have stock wires and they are waaaaay overdue for a change so instead of buying OEM I wanted a little better performance without buying ricey super thick wires.Whats the part number for these NGK's you guys speak of?
