Try twisting the boot to loosen them up. It may be time to replace the wires anyway. Next time use a little dielectric grease on the boot to keep moisture out. There are tools made to help pull spark plug wires off and you should be able to buy one at any good auto parts store.

I was just want to pull a few plugs to see the condition cause I don't know that last they were changed. So when I couldn't get any off. I know that I should change them now. How much is the tool?

I think it is around $10. Look on Amazon or go to your local Pep Boys or Autozone.

You'll want to change the spark plugs as well. Do this with the engine cold and be gentle. Take it easy when you start turning the plugs out. If you feel resistance go back the other way with the ratchet. Don't force the. Work each plug back and forth until they're out. Remember to reinstall the metal heat shields on each new plug as well. The 3 in the back are tricky but you can get to them from topside. HTH. -Jim

Use anti-seize on the threads of the new spark plugs as well.
