The tips are changing color due to heat coming out from your exhaust. You need to polish to keep them looking good and hope they don't get too hot. I installed all my GT's with double wall stainless steel tips. The double wall eliminates the yellowing and eliminates the need to polish them. They look good unless you're running through rain and mud which you would then have to polish. LOL

The double wall design allows the first layer of the inner tip to turn yellow due to heat (which you won't see) and the heat never reaches the 2nd layer (which is the outer part you do see) to turn yellow. If you are cleaning them too often for yellowing, I suggest purchasing the double wall chrome or stainless steel tips. As mentioned, they will never yellow unless you are running so hot that you're engine would explode. But your engine would go out before that happened. LOL

Interesting?? Mine have never gotten yellow. I usually drive 100+ daily on the freeway on all of my cars (Except 2000GT since it's not running ) and I have never had to polish them. Let me clearify that these double walls are doubled and then rolled. So the first layer i'm talking about is actually 2 layers of metal that are touching together and the 2nd layer i'm talking about is 2 additional layers that are approximately .25" apart. I will take a picture when I get a chance sometime today.

Will doing that eventually hurt the chrome?

Nope. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes and wash off.

man, those tips cost you some cash and seems like they suck. LOL 2 tips at 4.5" Double wall rolled stainless steel tips $120. Like I mentioned before, in the years that I have had all my cars, none of them on any of my cars, have turned yellow. I wipe them off with normal wash of the car every 2 weeks or 3 weeks if i'm busy. They of course get the common road grim, but mostly on the bottom where you can't see it. But that's the same for every cars exhaust.

---------- Post added at 03:33 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:32 PM ----------

Oh, and I do use a stainless steel cleaner/polisher every 3 months just to keep them super shiny longer.

---------- Post added at 03:34 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:33 PM ----------

Also, do not use chrome polish on stainless steel pipes. I thought I read above that you do have stainless steel, not chrome??

I got my rolled polished 4" tips new for 60 bucks installed.. Been great.. Yeah they get black.. Because I'm running a off road X pipe.. Any idiot knows if your running no cars your running rich which blows out black smoke, which makes your tail pipes dirty all the time . Duh

Magnaflow 3" single wall tips, off road exhaust never had a problem, double wall rolled 2.5 MAC tips, off road exhaust also never had a problem. When I'm driving hard they get a little black but nothing a cloth won't wipe off. I never bother with the insides. Waste of time unless a) its a show car or b) it has no effin motor.

Mine are 100% stainless steel tips. Not polished stainless steel. There is a major difference.
