Stock tint (deep solar ray) is 20% and that is pretty dark to see out of at night. I wouldn't go any lower than 20% on the fronts unless you want to have to roll you window down to see out. Not to mention the legal ramifications.

my 15% matched up to the rear windows great when i had it installed. Everything looked nice and even from outside. They said something about getting the correct tint color to "match" the factory tint shade.

Since then I have had the backs done in 15% over the stock tint made into the glass and its just about pefect :imo I would like to be as dark on the front windows...but that hasn't happened yet...maybe soon :D

Anything over 20% is a waste of time :imo

When I did mine I went with 35% on the doors b/c I didnt want to deal with the tickets. And put 5% on the rear.

Im ready for another Coat of 5% on the rear and want darker doors :crazy:

So IMO go as dark as you think you might want b/c you will want it before long :anitoof:

I have 1% on my truck. Looks pretty damn good, IMO. I wouldn't go any higher than 20%, personally.

I have 20% on the front sides and 20% over the stock tint in the back.. I want to go darker but I know cops can tell the difference between 20% and 5%, and they will bust you out here in Cali. I am also thinking of doing my windsheild 35%... got pics Jeff?

I have limo on my sides and the back is tinted to match. I also have 15% on my windshield. If you are alert enough, you can roll down your windows when you see police. And they can't even tell a windshield is tinted. I got stopped for speeding and the cop checked my brake tag, and couldn't even tell i had tint on my windshield. (i rolled my side windows down when i saw him trailing me, thus avoiding a ticket)

Damn, that looks good... :secret: thanks for the pics. Good idea with the stickers.. it kinda takes your mind off how dark the tint is. I'm considering some windshield tint 35% definately looks nice but I might go higher.. we'll see. Thanks again! :D :waytogo:
