This wire was returned by a customer for a warranty replacement, 3 of the 4 wires in this set were similarly damaged.

Diagnosis by automotive technician:
Return the spark plug wire set to the manufacturer.

Diagnosis by Magnecor:
We have no idea what bit into the silicone spark plug boots to gouge out the chunks. We can only assume the customer claiming warranty either thinks the wires are cannibalistic or damage to the wires resulting from an accident or carelessness should be covered under warranty. 

Suggested remedy:
Apart from the damage to the spark plug boots, the wire set is in good condition and can be repaired by replacing the damaged boots. The lesson here is that a simple inspection of spark plug wires will often show the cause of a suspected spark plug wire related problem, which can often be immediately and easily remedied.
