Question spark plug wires

Just want to tune up my 97 TJ 4-banger a bit. a friend told me plugs and plug wires are an important place to start. so i got advance's website and put in an order for plugs, wires, and some other goodies that i will pick up from the store on my way home from work today.

but afterwards i did some reasearch on the wires, and found that maybe i dont want the ones that i ordered ...i got the Xact spark plug wire set.
can anyone please tell me what they know about em and what i should get instead if they are really that bad? (im on a budget though...so nothing from quadratec or anything like that. lol )
ive read that NAPA makes a decent set...?

thanks
Patrick

the guy at advance agreed with me that the xact brand was crap. so he sold me silverlite professional spark plug wires. they seem to be decent quality...but i cant find anything online. anyone wanna chime in and let me know what they know?

Patrick

At my local Advance I had the option of Xact or Autolite at twice the price ($29) and they had a set for like $80 bucks which made no sense to me for a Jeep. The Xact fit wires just seemed flimsy to me so I picked up the Autolite set which had a quality feel to them.
