IMO, to a large extent what tips you get should be based on your personal preference for looks. Unless you were to get unusually long extra large diameter tips, performance will not be affected.

Also, I prefer to have a shop tack weld them on once they're where I want them. That way, no idiot can come by and twist one or more off.

I recently purchased a new muffler and tail pipes to ask this very same question. First thing to consider is how much room you have to work with and what size the tips you like.

I personally like 3" with a 45 deg. angle on all my trucks. But I don't know if that would be too big for the bonnie. Whatever you do, if you have winter weather it is worth the money to buy stainless, they last sooooo much longer than reg. chrome. Just my .02

I'm going to have to say that you should measure your current exhaust diameter to help answer that. If your exhaust is 2", then you would be fine with those. If your current exhaust is larger, say 2-1/4", then I suggest finding a tip with a larger inlet.

My opinion.

I'm not a fan of the dual bent up'*.. simply because lots of rice in my area run either a 12" round or the dual bents...

Can't wait to get home tonight...a new package should be awaiting my arrival.
