    Any plans to do the fronts?
    I would do 20 sides and rear if i was you. Not too dark but dark enough. Probably 40 up front

    Thats most likely what ima prob do...my last car i had like 10's on it over the course of 5 years i think i got 5 tickets for excessive tint they have a meter thye put on the window and it was 100 bucks each time i got a ticket...they give u the option if you get the tint taken off they take the ticket away but the car looked naked without the tinits so i would pay...theres a cop that sits right outside my college he sitts outside this car and points at every kid that has any kind of tint on the drivers and passagers side window and writes u up real pricks over in long island NY lol....i knida feel liek wiht the loudmouth exhaust dark tinits n no plate on the front ima be a magnet to cops especially with it as a DD hahah but u live once right...ima go with the 20% and lay off the front for now thanks tatertot91!

    20% is the darkest I would do. Anything darker and its hard to see at night.

    35% on the sides for no issues at night. 20% in the back.

    I have 20% all around (except windshield), and I love it. Dark enough during the day that people can't see in and not too dark that night driving is hazardous. I've also never had a police officer bother me about it.

    There are pics in my profile album.

    When I had my vert, I had 5% all around on it. I would never do 5% on a vert again, its just about impossible to see at night unless you have the top down. Forget backing up.

    20% on the doors.
    5% on the back window.

    Ignore the wheels....




    Front the front angle though, the front windows look a bit darker than 20% and you don't loose visibility at night.

    im pretty picky when it comes to tint. so i will more than likely go the same all the way around or at least keep the % a little closer to one another. this includes the front..so i will go to my eye doctor here soon and complain that my eyes are really sensitive to light especially when driving so i can get a exemption to get front tints
