Whaddayathink about these? Look like a good addition to my 454 "protection plan".
Mine ar not too old, but also not heat resistant..my budget ( read 2 kids ) won't allow for those Jacobs ceramics.

Accel Extreme 9000 Heat Reflective Black Ignition Wire. Item number: 2455264528
The Extreme 9000 Heat Reflective technology is not a paint. It is a multi-step process using patented materials. Permanently bonded to the spark plug boot, it will not rub, peel or flake off and stays as flexible as the silicone spark plug boot itself. The heavy duty stainless steel alloy winding, aramid/fiberglass core and stainless steel spark plug terminals make these some of the best firing, longest lasting wires you'll own!"

Thumbs up Good stuff!

I just put a set of Accel plug wires on my Toyota. Anything you can do to make your ignitiion system, belts and hoses more 'heat resistant' is undoubtedly a good thing. Having changed the belts and hoses on my 325 (at least some of them) on the side of the road, I can tell you that you don't want to have to do it more often then absolutely necessary!

agreed. I have good, fairly recent wires now, but not heat resistant.
Just thinking about next summer and travel in the south makes this a good idea.
