You have misplaced some of the wires on the distributor. Also make sure that the coil wire that runs from the center of the distributor to the coil pack (if installed, instead of coil packs) is connected securely. Sometimes new wires are hard to get to snap on. You should hear and/or feel the wire clip into place.
If you have a distibutor, get a repair manual and find the firing order for the distributor versus the plugs. Find the number one on the engine and the distributor and make sure it is correctly linked. Do this for the other wires. Chances are you only have two of them crossed.
For future reference, when you change plug wires, and plugs, do them each one by one so that this does not happen. Don't worry though, I've done it many times.
I am positive this is the issue, as I have done this and as soon as I read rough idle, and missing, this came to mind immediatly. and considering you just changed the wires, I'm sure that's the problem.
Please let me know if you need further assistance if this doesn't correct the problem, or if the problem has been solved already.

The computer should have coded a problem. If it did not code it is usually a vacuum or compression problem. With the motor running use a spray bottle of water and go along the seams of the intake manifold, Brake booster, EGR valve, and anything that has a vacuum line and spray them.
If you have a vacuum leak the water will be drawn in and the idle will be affected. That would be the gasket or part to replace. Sometimes on 4.6 SOHC engines the area under the Airhorn clogs the intake ports for the EGR. The groove under the gasket needs a cleaning.
Autozone and Oreillys will scan your Ford free. There may be a problem with the diagnostic system in your vehicle and at least you would be informed.
