Default What % tint?

So I really want to tint my windows, but i'm not too sure on what percent to get.

My friends are all telling me to black it out and go 5% in the front, and have the rear matched, along with a 5% windshield strip.

I never drove with tints before.. So what do you guys think?

Was gonna say, they allow it where your at (Front window).

I'd go 5 all the way around & if its not dark enough you could double it up. Not sure on the front, maybe 60-70

Around here, they will pull ya over if they even think its tinted...

I got 5% all around on the Z. Can't see shit if there isn't a street light at night. But you learn to work with it.
