7" exhaust tip too big?

Just like the title says is a 7" tip too big? I was thinking of going 6" but seems that's what everyone has and 8" looks goofy.

How big is your exhaust? Thats what i base mine off of. a big diffference from pipe to tip IMO looks stupid. I have a 5" exhaust with a 5" tip. I maybe would have gone 6" haha

Also depends how long the tip is as well. anyway different strokes for different folks. just my .02(:

i have a 5" flopro and a 7" tip i think its like 12inches long.
doesnt look goofy or stupid. im also lifted and id say that helps also. I had a 6 inch tip first and it fell off onthe road somewhere.

Trucks dirty but you get the idea. I think it looks fine. I dont like huge exhaust tips either, but i think this turned out good. Its just a cheapo off ebay. Not really worth the extra moolah for an RPB or MBRp...etc. when by my luck falllsssssss offf!

I like the looks of that. My exhaust is a 4" so I don't know if 7" will look goofy but I want to buy a 18" long one so maybe you won't see the 4" exhaust a much?

I had a 5" exhaust with a 7" x 18" long tip and it looked great, on a 4" exhaust i would stick with a 6" max just my opinion.

4 to 6 would look just fine also. cant go wrong with either one. as long as you stay away from a 12inch around tip!!!!!

Ive had a 6" tip out the side, 7" out the side, 7" axle dump, and then just now went to a 6" mbrp out the side. so here are a bunch of pics and you can see what you like. personally i liked the 7" better, it gave it a deeper tone with the longer tip. but the 6" dual wall mbrp looks bigger than a 6" rolled so not too bad. here are some pics for ya

magnaflow DPF back with 6" tip




magnaflow with 7" tip





7" axle dump


flo pro 5" with 6" mbrp dual wall tip
