I wish I could do 20% to match the rears but that is just asking to get stopped by the cops all the time. With my 35% on the front of my BMW I got 4 tickets in the 8 years I owned it. I have really light-sensitive eyes so it is much more comfortable for me when I have tinted windows.
Yeah I've heard horror stories about the CHP busting tinted vehicles. PD here is very lax about those sort of things. They don't even mention it when you're pulled over, let alone pull you over just because of dark tint.

My favorite car was tinted 2.5% on all sides and 35% on the windshield. It was definitely dark, didn't take long to get a ticket either. The cops are very strict around here.

I've tinted my last 6 cars the same... 15% on the sides with 45% on the windshield.

This is the latest vehicle I've tinted and it's 15% on the 2 fronts, 45% on the windshield and 20% over the back windows... Wanted it a touch darker this time.

I have yet to tint the front windows on my truck, but I think I will go with 35% to fly under the radar with the cops. I had 20% rear and 35% front on my BMW and loved it. Factory tint on the back windows has to be around 20%, right?
I've had 35% fronts and a 50% shield for a solid 9 months and havent been hassled by chp. When I ran 5% it was almost immediate. The way I figure is as long as they can see your outline you'll be fine. I do miss my dark tint though...

Dang that's rough! I'm surprised they don't allow any. I don't enjoy driving around with 2.5% like these guys do; too hard to not run over people at night haha. But at least having 50% is better then none. They must have had some officers get shot at through the window or something to be that strict. Speaking of which...man I would be nervous walking up to one of these 2.5% all around trucks!
Serious note:, ; run ons of excessive force against is just the allowance of we passed out. We got rights, born into the night, shall we live with privacy out primal fight. Stand against and never with common sense, blow the load.... Our daily supply, of unending ability to fight, can be with or against if now we know

Exactly. I've been saying this for years but couldn't quite articulate it like you did.
