Your at the right mileage to change the wires. They're usually the problem.

When you take the wires off, make sure the terminals on the coil towers are nice and shiny. If they're a whitish powder type crud on them, replace the coil as well. If the skip persists after plug replacement, you might have a coil problem still. Either that or a parts guy sold you crappy wires. Buy ac/delco plug wires for this beauty...
