What spark plug wires?

I have a 396 Big block / Hooker Headers. I currently have ACCEL 300+ 8.8 Wires with a straight boot at the spark plug. The only problem is
the wire at the drivers side second plug in is burning from being to close to the header.... Anyone have a wire set recommendation?

MSD wire 25-30 ft. Buy some straight boots, 135* boots and a couple of 90*boots. Also, get a set of wire heat shields. Make your own wires and use the boots you need, where you need them.
Good luck.

Another option - try a set of shorter plugs. Accel makes some.
