    There is no need to replace these wires if you just happen to think it's time. They're not a maintenance part. The only time you should have any issues at all with those wires is if someone cut them or if they became old and brittle and happened to break (have yet to see this happen).
    actually in the manual it calls for spark plugs and spark plug wires to be replaced at 60,000 miles?? or am i mistaken...?

    Your car doesn't have spark plug wires... the maintenance interval for the NGK Iridiums on Turbo Subarus is 80k miles.

    Your manual calls for spark plug wires? What car do you own?

    Personally I'd never wait that long. Your fuel consumption is certainly going to start to suffer. 50-60k is about the limit of what you want to do on any car.
