Default what tint level should i get?

i was thinking about tinting my windows but dont know what level to get. if i tint over the stock tint in the back would it be darker than the fronts with the same level? also i want it so you cant just look right through my windows and see what stuff is in my rig (exspensive stereo).

I'd go for 100%. You can use those rear view cameras on both ends.

No reason to tint over the rear IMO... Unless you want that stuff blacked out.

I have 15% on my front and you can see details if you're within 3' or so of the window so it depends on what level of privacy you want.

LOL 100% is no tint at all. 100% clear glass.
the % number is how much light shines thru.
Limo tint is 5%

i live in ohio, so they can't just pull you over for tint. they have to have a reason other than tint to get you. and usually in trucks they don't bother you

I live in the Calif Bay Area, and there is nothing illegal on my truck.
My 5% tint in the rear has never given me any grief from the Popo!
I can see just fine thru the tint,as well
