Oh ok, Have them take the old tint off. It will cause alot of problems tinting over tint, looks like crap and peels. Its easy enought to take off so just have him do that and put the new stuff on

Its worth it, You would spend at least that with the cleaners and glue removals. Just make sure they do a good job man. I had a car done once and it looked like Stevie Wonder did it, so BE PICKY!!

The legal tint limit in Georgia in 35%
I am wondering if i get 30% or 25% do you think i will get stop by the cops? I am trying to get something that will be dark. I already know i can make the back window as dark as I want. I will probably get that one blacked out.

Have you ever got pulled over? I mean i see alot of cars around here with dark tint. I think if you get pulled over for speeding or something then they will try to bust you for the tint to add extra stuff

i have 15% whene the legal percent is 50%. I've had no issues. if you get pulled over for speeding, they could site you for your tint. but they can't pull you over just for your tint i believe. kinda like seat belts. If i would suggest a percent, i'd say either 15% or 20% whichever the guy has. if you go 35%, you'll regret it later on, because it really isn't that dark, i mean it's dark but just not enough. go 15%.

Yeah I know it, I have had every car that I own done, I have a Hyundai Tucson with 10% all around. It is illegal, you can be stopped for just that but it isnt a priority for most po's because most of them have the same thing. Also in some states that officer has to prove what percentage it is to deem it illegal and issue a summons. They sell tint meters, however in order for those meters to be utilized by po's it must be adopted and approved by the state Attorney General and put into that specific states A.G. Guidelines

I got pulled over about 2 months ago for speeding and the cop didn't say anything about my window tint. probably because I was polite and not being a douche bag, but that's besides the point. I know my tint is at least 15% or 20%. which if what you say is true, still illegal in OH
