Plug wires do not fail like that on their own unless they are just substandard junk to start with. Buy better parts and you probably won't have so much trouble.

I need to know if you have a twin cam or single cam engine?Twin cam has the spark plug's straight up and the single cam has the plugs facing the front of the car. Also what brand wire's are using?SO are you saying the spark plug wire where it goes on the plug the crimped end is coming off?Does it cause a miss fire that's how you know it's burning out?
