I have a set of an off brand and I clean them and take care of them and they still look brand new. I have had them for about 8 months.

buy stainless steel polished ones instead of chrome, they'll hold up and shine for alot longer and theyre easier to clean

If you weld SS to chrome, you're asking for them to fall off. Definately go for the stainless.

1. Request interweb keys from Al Gore - As he is probably off hunting Manbearpig.
2. Connect to interweb via your home computer and log onto google.com.
3. Type something having to do with stainless steel exhaust tips into the search field.
4. Browse results, when you find the ones you like, click "add to cart" and proceed to enter your credit card and address info.
5. After recieving a confirmation email, contact Al Gore and be nice, ask him if he caughtt Manbearpig or ask about the weather or something, then kindly thank him for the use of his interweb keys.
6. Wait for said tips in the mail.
