Default Would this look stupid?

I've got a black 97 stepside and I want to tint my windows. Here's the issue: my summer car is tinted 5% and 20% back and sides, respectively, and at night, I can't see squat when I'm backing up. I can deal with it in that car because it's summer and it's light out a lot longer and I can always put my window down to use the mirrors to back up. But my truck will be my winter vehicle and the days are so short here in winter that I find myself driving in the dark 75% of the time. So I'm wondering if I might leave my rear window with the factory tint and just tint my side windows (mainly for looks, call me vain ) Since you really can't see the rear window when looking from the side anyway, will this look stupid? It would certainly be more user friendly.

Just tint the side windows to match the factory tint on the rear window
