I have Paradigm Studio 60 v2 fronts and Center. I have owned the same 14 gauge bi-wired speaker wire purchased from a hi end retailer for the last 12 years without issue. I just moved into a new home and my distances between the speakers have changed hence I need new wire. Can i keep the same wires for the front right and center and buy 14 gauge bi-wire somewhere and just mix them or is this a problem?

I was looking at the Blue Jeans Bi-Wires and my length would be roughly 13 feet and length on the other two I currently own are roughly 8 feet.

Splice your current wire to get two 16 foot lengths, bi-wiring does absolutely nothing. But if you must bi-wire to get your placebo fix there's no reason why you can't add more to them as you propose.
