Plastidip will crack and peel off due to the heat. If you really want to paint them ceramic coating is your best bet, or a quality powdercoat.

Barbecue black spray paint from Walmart or homedepot has worked well for me. It's made for touching up your outdoor grill.

you might be able to get away with the plastidip. the tips dont get too rediculously hot like the cats or manifolds, but hot air is blowing through it still. If you have access to a laser thermometer, i would check the temps of the metal at different times just to see what numbers you get.

How much do you think it would be to powder coat the tips?

Have used the BBQ High Temperature paint to paint muffler/tips black and a 3/8" white ring on the tip and they still look great after 5,000 miles

Those look good. Btw what stripe size is that? 10" wide with 2" gap?

Plasti-dip is the best thing to try first most cars it will work fine for tips but use 6 plus coats
I have my tips and wheels dipped on my hummer and that went through very rough terrain and my exhaust more than likely ran higher temps from using 4low.

The heat is probably going to harden it sorta, so if anyone does this and later wants to remove it and realizes that its not peeling off easily, the trick is either respraying it with more plastidip, wd40, or lacquer thinner. All will help dissolve or loosen plastidip.

Look up dipyourcar and they make a dip remover spray. I personally had no problem removing it off mine. again tho do many coats, more coats the easier to remove!

I used a high temp Duplicolor engine spray paint on my tips on my old Ford Focus. Within 2 months, most of it cracked and peeled off and looked terrible.

The grill paint will probably be the way to go.
