RockAuto.com has several sets to choose from. Also, go to a good independent autoparts store, and they should be able to get some. O'Rielys and AutoZone don't sell them.
The dealership is usually about 30-50% higher in cost.

Tell us what you find.

Thanks Everet,
The thing is I live in Israel, and all we have here are the dealer's (they are about $48).
What I usually do is order and send it to my brother in law that lives in NY, and he sends it to me (or someone brings it when visiting).
What would you recommend from RockAuto.com's list?

Thanks Lonnie,
The problem is not where to get it but which brand to get.
I know the quality of the wires is important, my question is are the more expensive ones twice as good than the chipper ones.
Is it worth to pay $50 or can I just settle with the $16 ones (BOSCH).

Given that the longest cable run is about 15" I would think if you could get the Bosch ones to fit then they would be OK. The cables are covered from the elements anyway so dirt/grime/grease should not be an issue.

Worst case is you waste $15.

even the economy ones that we sell are good wires and still made by the same company as the premium or at least for the same company, sometimes they are outsourced...the main difference is a 5year 100,000 mile warranty versus a lifetime warranty on the premiums...if your only concern is the $ and not 5 or 10 years down the road go with the economy, they should last at least the 5 years, if not they're covered <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

I prefer to replace them anyway every 4-5 years so I think I'll go with the BOSCH wires.

Thanks guys

Ok, I just ordered some parts for my Sporty's first tune up from http://www.rockauto.com/.
Looking to improve Miles Per Gallon.
Look over my list and let me know if I'll need anything else. I think I got it all.

*Bosch Platinum +4 Spark Plugs x 4
*Bosch Spark Plug Wire Set, Includes 2 Wires
*FEL-PRO Throttle Body Gasket x 1
*FRAM PCV Valve x 1
*Victor Reinz Valve Cover Gasket x 1
*Antiseize for the spark plug threads.

One more Question: Is the decorative plastic cover over the top of the engine a functional piece of equipment?
I mean; Does it force air over the engine for direct cooling, help make an air bubble over valve cover when fording rivers, or is it just added weight?

There is no need to replace your valve cover gasket unless yours is leaking, you just need to remove the center cover to get to the spark plugs, not the valve cover. I would change the fuel filter also unless it has allready been done. The decorative is just that decorative, my 95 does not have one.

Me personally I would not use BOTCH plugs if my life depended on it. Stick with NGK. I can guarantee in 6 months you'll be replacing those BOTCH plugs.
