    Tint

    Ok, so I'm about to go crazy if I dont finally put some tint on my car, just dont know how dark to go. I think legal is 25% or something like that.....

    Of course I'm not going to get that, but I dont want cops pulling me over every two miles I travel.

    Pics and tint would nice

    Thanks in advance

    15% is the the perfect tint imo. . . 20% is the lightest i would go. all 4 of my birds have 15% on them

    damn...I really like that first link.....looks sharp. Thanks for the pics man...

    15% doesnt look that bad, and it doesnt look like it will attract to much attention from piggys....You ever been stopped before?

    I have 92% on back glass & 72% on doors. In ohio you can go as dark as you want on back but know more then 72% on doors.
    By the way never been stop, I had it done 2 yrs ago.

    you must be usin the percentage of light not let in or something. . the opposite of how ive always heard tint bein classified. 92% prob = 8% and 72% = 18%

    Yeah asking on here isnt going to help you find out what the police are going to do. By now you should know what the cops are like in your town no? Every town/city is different, I live in Philly and NEVER had a problem, I drove 2.5 miles out of the city into Neshaminy and got pulled over......for 15% tint. Just for tint I got pulled over, he let me go and told me to get back to Philly ASAP.

    id say it looks like it could be 15 . . . 15 can look dark as hell.

    5% is too much imo. . . i had it on a beater truck. it looks good and was awesome on a sunny day, but at night i couldnt see crap

    Yea, I like to think I never get stopped by cops, because I'm on a constant look out for them....we'll see how I do at night with tint....
