I have used high-performance automotive spark plug wire for HV power supplies. Just make sure it is copper wire, not "resistance wire". I prefer the 8mm silicone jacketed wire made by Mallory, which has red insulation, or Accel, which is yellow. You may have to look a little to find an automotive electrical place that will sell you bulk wire for the length you need. Otherwise you'd need to buy a 100' roll.
