Default OEM Window tint

Hey guys I was thinking of getting my front door windows tinted to the same percentage as the rear doors. just wondering if anyone knows whats the OEM percentage on those windows and how much its cost you guys to have it done professionally? I am not interested it in a DIY kit. I think they run about $45 a window, just wondering if my guess is right?

I believe its around 20% oem. Also, It cost me $125 locally to have me rear glass, supercab windows and side windows done 35% front, 15% back. Whatever you do, get someone who guarantees their work for a lifetime. If I ever get a bubble or anything, I can take it back to the guy and he will replace it free of chard

Factory is closer to 30%
Most states anything below 30% is illegal

Usually its that but whatever comes from the factory is fine. Its the same here, 35% up front for extended cab trucks and anything in the back windows is fine. BUT if your car came factory with 20% tint, then you are good.

Ive had it for about 5 months now, the cops here dont really care about tint, i have tinted tail light covers too. It all depends on the cop honestly. Oh and for price, I did this myself with 15.00$ recut tint from ebay, but best buy does it here for 70.00$ per pair of windows

Thanks for posting this thread Rango, i've been wondering what the factory side window tint percentage was. I eventually want to get my two side windows done on the Supercab doors, since Ford wasn't cool enough to do it for me from factory.lol.

I guess I would run it at my own risk. My bro has been rocking 20% for almost 5 yrs and no issue from the POPO here either.

LOL i Laugh at people who put illegal tint on their windows and say "cops don't care around here" so, when One DOES care and you get a ticket, don't be upset at the ticket and the fact you have to remove your tint (which you knew was illegal)
