Oem wireset doesnt fit on new spark plugs

I bought a set of 6 spark plugs and the oem wires dont fit on them at all. The spark plugs that were already there have threaded tips that the wires go on. But the wires still push on like any other car to the older plugs. I dont want to spend $100 on a wire set and I cant find plugs that have the same tips as the old ones. I did however find plug adapters but im not sure im looking at the right thing.

Have you tried to unscrew the little the metal tips off of the spark plugs you bought? That should solve your problem.
