I mentioneed this in another thread-there is a guy on fleabay who seels pre-cut window tint for 17.99 and you can mix and match the level of tinting. I have no affiliation with him other than being a satisfied customer..Just sppreading the word..thanks Tom

Do a search on tint laws and look specifically for your state. Each is different and many times, the laws for cars are different than trucks and SUVs. 35% on the rear and back side windows is usually safe but check just to make sure before you do it.

Keeping a copy of said laws on hand in your vehicle might be a good idea incase you get pulled over by some dickhead that is on a power trip. Be respectful and polite but don't let him or her bulldoze you either. I've heard of people getting fined when they were perfectly legal and another case where a person was forced to strip all the tint off before they could continue on their way.

Get 15% on your side windows and limo on your back and ext. cab window. Cops ride by to see if there is a difference in your back windows and front. So don't do it all the same percentage.

The only place I've ever heard of people getting in trouble is Cali. My bro's tint was checked once... I think he has 20-25% but he was never cited for it.

The amount of tint has nothing to do with it's ability to block UV rays. Apparently they are all the same. Our law says that you have to be able to identify the driver through the window and nothing is allowed on the front. I can never figure why anyone would handicap themselves by having the dark tinted stuff. Just an opinion.

I just put 35% on mine yesterday (rears are factory tinted). Not too dark, looks better than stock, hopefully will fly with the local cops.
