Default Exhaust tips

Has anyone replaced their dual exhaust tips with the ones that look like some that I've seen on Grand Prix'*? They are double chrome ones with a rolled edge, and look pretty good.
I was looking at my original last weekend and noticed that they were uneven.
I tried to adjust the left one and it broke off!! While I was trying to remove the clamp the right one fell off!! They seem to be made of cast aluminum and were corroded inside.
Finally got both clamps off and cleaned the broken parts out of the tail pipe. They only go into the tail pipe about 3/4" now but with the clamp right at the edge they seem to be on solid.
I thought it would be nice to put in a better looking tip now that the parts are cleaned up. The outside diameter of the tip is 2 1/8" and goes into the tail pipe. I think that the Grand Prix tip is 2 1/2" in diameter and goes over the tail pipe. Any suggestions?

I just install an exhaust on the car, I had 2 duel exhaust tips put on, they are 2.5" in and chrome duel 2 5/8" out. I think that they look pretty cool on there. Other members on this list has gotten something similar done.

Use whatever tips you want, just make sure the ID of the tip matches the OD of the exhaust pipe.
