spark plug wire length

I bought a new set of spark plug wires for my car and then noticed upon replacing the old ones that the new ones were all about 2 inches longer than the old ones. How much difference can that make? Is it something I should be concerned about?

Nothing to worry about. That length so they can fit a varied number of cars with same wires. Only the box and part number changes to protect the innocent Maybe that was before your time...........Dragnet

Back then it would have been Frank Smith, not Bill Gannon.

Well, maybe it's good the wires are a little long. Probably less likely to short out.
