Wire will be lower stretch, but is more difficult to handle and reefing does not really work with wire.
Wire will not last as long and when a strand does break with wear it will catch on your hands.

I recommend you use marlow excel racing or Marlow Excel Vectran.
Straight forward dyneema I find has far too much creep.
Mail order from Northampton Sailboats.

hope that helps
