Plugging spark plug holes?

Clever me. I bought a set of universal aftermarket spark plug wires, and they have huge boots on the plug end. The boot length is good, but the diameter is huge and there is no way you can use the stock rubbery doodads that help seal the spark plug holes in the engine tin.
Anyone devise a clever way to do this? TIA as always!

soak the tin seals in hot water. you should be able to work them over the dist end of the plug wires.
