Default Where to buy tips?

Ok, I must be exceptionally special. I cannot find anywhere online that sells a variety of exhaust tips. I dont know what I'm looking for in particular, but I want to replace the cowbells (possibly the mufflers too...meh I'll worry about that later) Any good suggestions as to where to look online for tips? I havent had any luck on ebay either.

Bleh I've seen tips here and there on eBay that are OK...but there is so much rice to sort through I've sort of given up on eBay. I'll head over to hottexhaust right now and check it out!

I like these mucho...dbeast, are these what you have? I wonder how they'd fit in my goofy shaped exhast outlet spaces in the bumper. I found somewhere some tips that had the same general cowbell shape, but stainless and they appeared smaller...didnt flare as much it seemed.

I am interested only in stainless...we put stainless tips on my husband'* old 98 silverado and transferred them to the new one they where still in such good shape at sale time. No chrome...I cant deal with blemishes and all the maintenance in this climate...

I was happy with hottexhaust as well. My tips came within 3 days. I got #35168
Do a search on the BC for exhaust tips. There will be a lot of hits. I searched for weeks on the BC before I finally decided on something.

Yes, they are weld on and they have a bigger diameter than my pipe coming from the muffler because they had to cut the old tips off which also cut the larger flanged part off as well. They welded them half way around on the bottom side so it was tight on the bottom edge with a gap around the top. It is not seen from any angle and they said I could hang from them and they wouldn't come off. Car-X charged me 30.00 to install them. and took time for me decide on the fit and view of them before welding them. They did a good job.
