Default Life expectancy of spark plug wires?

I know the life expectancy of various spark plug types but what is the consensus on the life expectancy of spark plug wires? Should you change the stock wires around 80,000 or sooner/longer?

I'm going to change my spark plugs to the TR55s soon and I am probably going to change the wires as well with either stockers, Accel or Taylor (leaning more toward Accel)

I went with the Accel Extreme 9000 8mm wires from Summit. I have 65,000 miles on the truck and am going to replace the stock wires with the Accels and use the NGK TR55s. I'm not sure if I really needed to replace the stock wires but I went ahead anyway.

When you can hear that notorious tick-tick-tick(spark jumping to ground before it reaches the plug) or you can actually see it jump(best observed in a dark area or at nite) it's time for an upgrade.
