Spark Plug wires

Man! were they hard to get off!!!!

I was wondering if I should put some dielectric grease on them while I put in my new plugs???

Any other tips regarding the spark plug boots?

There was a little oxidation on them, I was wondering if I should replace them?

Please let me know what you think...
Thank you,

Yeah, they tend to freeze up a bit if they're left on for too long. Dielectric grease helps a bit, it also helps to remove and reseat them every couple of months. I remember thinking that I'd NEVER get them off when I replaced mine...

I always thought that should be part of the regular scheduled maintance, pulling the spark plug wires off so they don't get stuck.
