Nowadays, exhaust tips typically do nada - just an outlet to point fumes in a particular direction.

Days past it was more common to find packed tips (resonator tipss), and with those the diameter effected the tone ever so slightly. Essentially smaller tips helped make a sharper bark and a bigger tip would give a more mellow tone. Pacesetter is one of the few aftermarket makers around that still offers decent resonator tips.

That aside, like FG notes, just go with a tip that is equal to or larger than the exhaust pipe for best results.
