    How Dark is your window tint?

    I live in Tennesse and our limit is 35%. I want to get 15% on sides and back, with 5% on T-tops. Would this be risky since our cars draw alot of attention anyway?

    20% here in texas...well in montgomery county anyway...you can go as dark as you want on the back window..but the sides have to be 20% or lighter.

    I have 20% and I don't get hassled by cops about it, then again, I always have the windows down and the T-tops off...

    the law here is 27% all around; but you can tint the back as dark as you want as long as the sides are at least 70%.

    Anyway, I did mine at 15%. I did get a ticket for it(with the windows down and t-top off), but it's well worth it.

    here in texas its 25%....n e ways a week ago i was pulled over by a state trooper due to my windows being to dark, so he told me that before he scans the tint that anything bellow 25% is illegal therefore hed have to give me a ticket..so he scanned it and made this weird pissed face looking at me, and asked "do u know how dark this windows are?" and me being stupid said "3%"...he looked at me and said" well if u know thats its that dark how come u havent removed them"i just stood there shock whitout a reply....so he left to his car ran my background and came back whit a ticket...an till now i still havent taken them off..

    its up to the cop but here in PA Im pretty sure any aftermarket tint is illegal. However, i have been pulled over and my tint was never mentioned.

    this may not make sense but i owned an 87 mustang gt that i bought with 5% side tints the rear hatch had tints that you could see through, i never had a problem, the biggest mistake anyone could make is installing the blue/purple HID headlights, i will guarantee that you will get pulled over

    We have no limits in Guam at the moment. They are trying to change the law though. Currently on my V-6 its super dark with full faced front. You cannot see in from any angle. My Trans Am is military standard awaiting to see if the law changes.
