so right now i have 35% tint on my front windows and 5% tint on my back windows and i thought i would get pulled over for that so i didnt get any darker on the front. but i havent been messed with in 6 months so i want to go darker. i was thinking 5% on my front and back then getting my windshield done in 35% or 20%. what do you guys think?? how bad will they crack down on that in cali??

i have had the same 35% oh fronts and 5% on rears for over a year now. no hassle. but i dont know about 5% on the front.. super dark man.. and 20% on the windshield would look bad ass but it would be pitch black at night...

all in all.. if its already illegal GO MAX!! lol...

I wouldn't go darker than 35% on the windshield. 20% is too much for night time driving on the windshield, IMO.

35% is just fine, but realize, with 5% on the sides, hell, even 15% on the sides, a cop WILL notice you have 35% tint on your windshield even during the day 'cause he/she wont really be able to look in when driving by.

I don't know if you noticed, but I have 50% on the windshield, 15% on the sides and 5% on my back window. I got popped late last month and the cop didn't notice my windshield. But if you were to line it up with another car, you can clearly tell it's tinted.

Dmax has 5% all around and 50% on the windshield. lol. A little much IMO 'cause he can't see shit at night, but it looks good. hahaha.

I have 5% on the rear sides and 20% on the rear so I can back up at night (Keep in mind this is ontop of the privacy glass)

25% on the front windows (33% is legal limit here), I wish I would have gone darker though because I still get a small glare.

All in all I wish I would have gotten 35% on the windshield, the tint does a damn good job of blocking the glare through the sides but the windshield is a big hole lol.

I think you will be happy with 20 on the front windows, idk what the limit is in Cali but here I don't think it would be too much darker than the limit to attract that much attention.

I would do 5% on all your windows, 35% on the windshield.

Trust me, if they want to bust your ass for tint.. they will. Otherwise, what I said above is the darkest you can go before visibility becomes any issue!!!! ;)

Ride dirty bruddah!
