I remember reading bits & pieces of what % tint some use.
Let me know what you run & why.
I've just pulled off the 5% because of inspection issues
(my guy was "advised" not to make any future "mistakes")
Dont miss the 5%. Cosmetically it looked great, at night, I was blind in reverse.
I wont keep the fishbowl look & MA legal (35%) is just to light.
Let me know what you like (or dont like)

I'm going to run 35% on the front windows and 10 or 20 the rest of the way around. A friend did that on his wagon and it looks awesome. No visibility problems, even at night. Also, in MA, only the front windows have to be 35%, legally wagons and SUV's can go darker.

I guess I need to see some 25%
In a sedan all 4 (really the 5th & 6th) need to be 35% to be legal
I dont think there's a trooper in the world that'll call you on the 5th & 6th

Exactly, like I said he has 35/20 and he goes thru inspection fine, and its one of those places that is a stickler for everything

I shouldve saved you the 5% so you could see how BAD it is at night.
Daytime no problem from the inside looking out

I've always done 20/35/50 on my cars, from back to front. Can still see at night and can't even see the fade in the daylight. So if 35 is legal, go 20 on the rear doors and back window and 35 on the front doors.

I am doing 20a all around on the dime.
