    Gonna go tint my windows. How dark?

    State law is 27% but I think that is too light, and I can find a shop that will go darker. I was thinking 15-20% all the way around. I have a SOM Firehawk. What do you think?

    Your lucky, in North Carolina the limit is 35% all around. I'd go with 20% on the sides and 5% on the back especially if you have audio equipment.

    Now I'm torn. I used to have 5% on my old car all the way around and liked it but hated parallel parking at night, but I rarely drive the Hawk at night. Thanks for the pics guys. I'm leaning towards 15% on the sides and 5% in back.

    our state law is something like 4" on the top of the windshield and only a 4" strip on the top of the driver/passenger windows... all the windows can be limo.

    its about the stupidest law in the US.


    but what can i say, I'm a rebel, sometimes.
    i just roll around with the windows down most of the time to try and avoid hassle from the law.
    and i didnt get my windshield tinted, cause the car was tinted before i bought it.

    I did 15% all the way around. Even with 15% its sometimes a bitch backing up or turning onto a dark street/road...if something shoots out into your path, you won't see it. I bought my car completely stock and the first thing I did was tint and windows and it looked like a completely different car. I adv against tinting the eyebrow, unless its a very think strip. I bought a 94 Z28 that had the eyebrow tinted way down and it was very dark. I couldn't see when a traffic light changed. Sometimes I'd have to lean out the window!

    I Have Always Had Like 32% On All My Front Windshields. Can We See More Pics Of Your Tint Guys? I Am Going To Strip Off My Cheap Purple Turning Tint And Redo It, But Cant Make Up My Mind Either. All I Know Is 32 For The Front.
