depends on the shop, but if youve got a split back window, prepare to get bent over. my truck got counted as having 7 windows, not 5 (i have a split back window), so i payed 125 for tint instead of less than 100

bro you can have all your windows tinted, you need to read tint laws.

back and sides - dark as your want
door windows- like 35% i think
windshield - only a 5 inch strip

i live in so cal

i go with the chp officers once month and we pull over at least 8 people a day for front windows being tinted no matter what percentage it is. they are getting a fix it ticket. and i dont need to pay $25 for something i know cant be aloud. you must have the wrong handbook for tint buddy. i don't think the chp will give out over 1,000 tickets a month for window tints just because they want to be dicks. and they cant do that. I live in the central valley in cali.

^^He's right, California doesn't allow window tint on the front windows.

Just out of curiosity, what is the average % on the front windows that you guys pull over? I've been out with cops (including CHP) before and never a word about my tint. IMHO, 35% is light enough that you can see in so it's not an issue for most officers.

its up to the officer if he is in the mood for handing out fix's it ticks lol most of them have tints on there cars lol but by cali law there can be no tint on the front 3 windows. unless it came from factory that way. some officers still give out ticks for that. kinda mest up to be doing that. they don't have peel on, on the factory tints. and yea if they can see in they popbably wont give you a tick. it becomes officer safety when a officer cant see in the window when he comes walking up to the truck and there is a guy behind the window with a gun pointing at him. happened to a officer in L.A before. didn't even know what hit him.

A few more quakes, and it will break off and float out into the Pacific.

The bottom line is that states have tint laws. Someone who gets a ticket for it has ZERO right to complain about it.
