A lot of automotive plug wire is resister wire. Part of the radio noise suppression system. On BMW Airhead motorcycles we use non-resister wire but have plug caps with 1000 Ohms, pre-electronic, and 5000 Ohms for electronic systems. The spark plugs are also supposed to be non- resister.

I suppose every combination of resister, non-resister, plugs, caps, wires, etc... has been tried and/or served in an emergency. If you put resister wire with resister plug caps you will have too much you know what.
