Wednesday of this week I'll be having my new muffler installed, and I've been searching all over for two Oval Chrome Tips that will fit over 2.25" pipe. all I found at Autozone were oval tips that are 2 1/8", I was just wondering if anyone here knows of any place online that I can get some that will be a direct fit. I've been looking online but I'm not having any luck.

If I can't find any that will fit do you think if I welded on a small adapter and then welded on the tips if that would work well.

I appreciate the help!

Quick word of advice: Try to find something that has the dual wall construction, as the single walled tips rust very quickly.

im not sure what there called but they have a tool that is made to expand muffler tubing. my dad has a pair of them and 3/8 ths is not that much it would solve ur problem easily. it fits inside and there is a bolt in the center ur turn it and ti expands pushing on the sides of the tubing making ti bigger i would ask a mechanic or a muffler shop they may know what it is called. ill ask my dad and get back to u idk if its worth to buy them for one time use. check ebay or sell them if u do buy them. good luck

Thanks for the replies, The tips from Autozone they just seem to fit, the Tail Pipe just needs be stretched just a little and the tips can be slipped on and welded. I was thinking maybe by heating up the tail pipe with a torch and sliding the tips on by tapping it with a block of wood and a mallet, that might work.

You can't expand chrome pipe, it will just crack, heating might work but your better off gettting an extention to make it fit/or get a different muffler with a smaller end pipe, but i might be able to get you a chrome dual tip tail pipe if your interested it is 2 1/4 (2.25). Let me know!!

PS welding chrome to an aluminized muffler might not hold as well as you might think. Just a thought
