Factory privacy glass on the rear (assuming that's what you're talking about) is approx. 18%... some people go 20%, some go 15%... I have 15% up front and I think it matches fine.

Ya 20% matches pretty well.

Just go 20% on the driver/passenger window and then tint the rest 5%

I agree with Myke, 20% matches well with factory tint

I personally think either way you go it won't really look bad... I like 15% 'cause I think it helps counteract the light coming in from the windshield. The back always seem to look darker to me just 'cause all those windows are tinted where the front is fighting all that extra light from the windshield.
