    need help choosing tint %

    hey everyone i got a white trans am with all white leather interior... anyone have any recommendations on how dark i should go? what have any of you guys with white cars done that look sick... being that my car is in my mom's name and she just got permission to tint her windows becuase of how sensitive her eyes are... i can tint to watever extent and just attribute it to her... so im not as much concerned with how legal it is as opposed to how good it looks...

    thanx

    Have you seen those "reflective" tints? Those look like a shiny aluminum or something. I think that would look "sick" on a white car. I dunno, I'll see if I can find pictures of what I'm talking about. As for black tint, go with the darkest your state allows. Some don't care and you can get away with Limo dark. Like my car .

    Does anyone make custom tints with reflective graphics?

    A guy here in town with a Cobra has a really nice tint with a horse charging (Stallion) with flames behind it.

    I would like to get something that would be oriented to my car...

    Ok I found some pics of it. Sorry this is all I can find at this time.

    Full silver

    Half silver, half black tint (most common of the two)

    Not sure you can have both on the same roll . But I did mine by buying a silver/reflective bowtie for my back window off ebay, and then tinted over it. Looks great!

    this might be one time that a clearish blue tint might actually look good on a car...

    35% is a legal tint in Alabama. Post pics when you get it done.

    i'd go with 35%. my brother has it on his white truck and it shows up real dark. i think that would look good. that and 35 isn't so dark that its inconvenient and hard to see out of.

    I was gonna get 35% on my Camaro and Im glad I didnt! It was way to light for me when I saw it in person, so I decided to go with 20% and Im happy with it. If I had to do it again Id get 15%
