Do the spark plugs wires need to be replace when replacing spark plugs?

No, they don't necessarily have to be replaced. However it is usually a good idea to replace the wires along with the spark plugs.

Also when you pull the spark plug boots off of the spark plugs the connector often can break loose and stay on the spark plug, thus ruining the wire.
