id say get the legal %. I mean unless you dont care and want to risk having it taken off ( friend of mine didnt pass inspection) then id say go as low as you want.

Find out the legal % and then find out what the fines are. If they aren't bad then go darker.

I have 35% on my windshield and 5% all the way around. I too am thinking about getting another layer of 5% put on. Undecided yet if I want to spend money on that.

Stang1101, don't know much about tint but I know that each state is different. My experience is just asking what the darkest legal tint is and going with it. Also, doing your rear window darker than your sides (illegal) usually will fly b/c cops are more worried about the sides. When I got my $530 ticketthe cop ofcourse checked my tint. After testing the side, he questioned the rear a lil but I was able to talk him out of a ticket for that. If I remember correctly my sides are 35 and my rear is like 15 or 20, more than likely tho the law where you live isdifferent.

I am pretty sure any tint on the front windows is illegal in MI, but so many people have it, so I would think unless it's really dark I wouldn't have any problems. I'm thinking of 35% all around, how dark is that?
