to be honest with you alot of my family members are cops and they will only pull you over for tints when they cant see you inside your truck and if you driving around like a douche lol if you wanna feel safer just go 20%all around because 30%its very light here in bright ass florida you shouldnt catch anytickets with 20% unless you drivin badly and they just wanna be dicks and add one more ticket

That's what the local tint shop told me when I went to get my g/f's windows tinted. If you get a windshield strip make sure you don't go below the AS1 line because state troopers love to ticket you for in North Fl.

Really as long as your not out acting like a douche a cop isnt gonna stop you for tint. They would have to be really picky to hit ya for 8% if you went with 20%


Mine is driver/passenger 20%
Rest 5%
I went with the same 5% in the back and little sides and 20% on the front windows. I don't think I would go darker in the front than 20%

Your trying to act cool with blacking out everything including the damn windshield at 5% so you can end up hitting someone at night, or worst kill someone? I don't have any tint on my front windshield & pray I don't hit a kid in my neighbor because all the street lights suck. If I were a cop, I'd pull your ass over issue you a ticket for the tint, reckless driving for 5% on the windshield and endangering others for the 5% on the windshield as well.

Just for that little outburst I'm going to tint my WHOLE windshield. And then drive around "recklessly" in your neighborhood. on daylight savings. I'm not a fucking kid. I know how to drive.

AND i'd pull your ass over for those blacked out headlights. Probably blacked the taillights out too. WAY more dangerous than tinted windows. Which is why cops are busting the idiots who black out their lights.

Wow, you must not be able to read. I don't drive recklessly in my neighborhood, I said its scary enough driving at night in my neighborhood without tint making sure/hoping no little kid runs from a non-lit driveway right at the edge where I can't see him & get hit. Let alone with 5% tint when you can't see anything. "I'm a fucking kid. I know how to drive." Don't know where to start on that, other then kids don't know how to drive very well/ don't have the experiences of driving for many years. I don't have blacked out taillights, nor do I have blacked out headlights. I have headlight covers but never use them on the road, as you can tell from my avatar.

Sadly, if you get pulled over for windshield tint, they impound your car on the spot, no questions asked.
