Plug Wire resistance.

I was just checking my MSD Super Conductor 8.5mm wires. Had these since about 2006 but they only have 30,000 miles on them.
To get the reading I have to put the ohms on 200K which is 200,000.
My meter says the wire is 115.2 and I'm thinking either I'm reading it wrong or this can't be right, if the resistance on the wire is that high I can't see how it ran at all, whats going on here? MSD says the resistance of these wires is about 50 ohms a foot, so am I doing something wrong here or is there another way to test it?
