My daily is getting tinted saturday morning. Now i have 5% on my obs and its dark as hell at night, but i love it..

My question is would 5% be to dark to daily on a black truck with grey/black interior? The tint guy recomended 20%. Some input and pictures would be appreciated..

I have 20% on my NBS. Since I have had it done I have lived in 4 states and drove from coast to coast with no problems from the cops so far.

i have 15 on my sides (to match factory) and 50 on the shield. its perfect. 35 on the shield would be better but they start popping you for that here. 50 leaves you in the clear, no pun intended. *knocks on wood*

btw, part of my consideration was the fact that i tow trailers every so often. its nice to be able to see what the fuck is going on behind me. can't see shit well enough in my friends f350 with 5% and 50% shield.

Ive got 15% to match my rear windows. Its dark enough for me and seems to have gotten a lil darker since i got it 3 years ago.

Im getting my rear windows done in 5% or possibly 2% in the next month or two just to knock some more sun out of the cab. Mine will be perfect for me after getting that done.

5% over everything, including the stock tint on the back and with a 15% shield strip. I love it and will probably do the same thing on my next one. Only problem with going that dark on a daily, or anything is trying to back up at night.

i have 2% and during days i think it needs to be darker and at night its almost too dark but i wouldnt change it for anything, i say 5% is fine for a DD, unless you do all night driving then i would go a little lighter

I went 50 on my winshield and 30 on the sides, wing windows are stock tint, and 0 in the back. I would love to go 5 on my sides but my truck sticks out like a sore thumb.


for your truck id go 20 on the sides and black out the back window. if you went 5 you might get pulled over:imo

I want to get 15% all around, I have just 35% right now and it isn't dark enough at all, 5% would be too dark though for me.
