Not much to say here. I got these from MURR on the forum. They are 8.5mm wires. Don't expect any kind of power increases from these...or any other wire. These, however, are built very well. Quality is 100% on these as you will see from the pictures. Here's the feature list from the box:

-More than 5 times better current flow than carbon core wire.

-Lifetime Limited Warranty

-Stainless steel conductor maximizes energy transfer for optimum spark efficiency

-Superior radio noise interference suppression

-High temperaturemagnetic suppression silicone wire that effectively resists current leakage as well as heat, vibration and age breakdown

-High temperature silicone spark plug boots that resist burning and age deterioration

-Stainless steel or brass terminals (dependingon the application) to eliminatecorrosion

-Double spring-lock terminals for a snug and positive connection

-Terminals air crimped to resist annoying pulloff

-Custom made for each applicationto ensurea proper and attractive fit

-Each lead individually tested as part of a comprehensive quality control program

Here's a few pics of the wires:

bought the same thing from aurora electronics directly (they were about 2 minutes frmo my old house), excellent quality, stainless steel wound, so much better then comparable 'oversize' leads.
on a side note, it would've been cheaper to buy through liam ..
oh & i got the red ones.
wouldn't mind the black w/ yellow writing, but since they're warrantied for life, doesn't look like i'll need to replace them anytime soon.

I have dealt with Jeff the owner or the years as he has built me some very powerfull 24 volt ignitions for racing. He is a top notched guy , very honest, great products.

I bought my Aurora wires almost a year ago, and never got around to putting them in till last week. All this time I've been running OEM NGK wires. My ignition consists of an MSD Digital 6 Plus. I should have done this upgrade a long time, because these are good wires! I immediatly noticed that engine would run smoother with the engine cold. It's usually a bit grumpy until it warms up. Theres also a slightly noticable gain in top end power when the gas is pegged.
My only troubles with these wires was swapping the connector on the primary wire to fit the terminal on my MSD ignition coil (I really should have bought a proper crimper), and fussing with new ignition wire clips (Auroras are oversized 8.5 mm wires). None of these are faults with the wires, just consequences with my setup.
Aurora's wires are solidly constructed. I didn't experience any terminals pulling from the wires, nor wires sliding out their boots as I've seen with cheaper wires. Aurora gives you a life time warranty with its ignition wires even if you use it for commercial or racing use!
Two caveats: you are required to use dielectric gel in the areas that the boots contacts the sparkplug and the valve cover to prevent voiding your warranty. Also Aurora only warranties their wires with terminals they attach. I voided the warranty on my primary wire by putting an MSD terminal on it, but I'm also not really worried about these wires failing anytime soon either.

How much do they cost (and how much to have them sent to Lithuania)?
Because around here I can find no wires for SSGTi... Now I'm using wires from Nissan Sunny GTiR so they are sticking out of the valve cover something like 3 cm :)

Give MURR a pm and he can help you out as he is the one most, if not all, of us are getting them from.
