35% is legal here but I have 20%. It is as low as you can go here without getting pulled over for it. I like it bc its dark enough to give you privacy but not too dark you can't see at night.

Mine is 20, it IS illegal in Ohio but I have not ahd a problem. Vision at night can be just a tad difficult, but can compensate and adjust rather easily.

I like my windows at 20%.

Take it for what it's worth....
This is my philosophy, also. 20% seems to be a good compromise between really dark, and functionally dark. Anything darker than 20% gets dicey for night driving.

It also depends on the objective. If you're doing it for cosmetic reasons, then you can go with lighter tint on a lighter-colored car (looks darker installed). If it's about protection and heat resistance, the darker, the better.

20% on Rally Yellow almost looks like limo (5%) tint:

I don't think so. Mine had zero tint, glass or otherwise when I got it. It was 100% see through

Tint does look different on bright colored cars than dark colored cars. Mine is 20% rear and quarters and front band, and 35% on the side windows. I love the way it looks on yellow.

Wrong factory tint let's way more than 30% of light in. You probably have your numbers backwards.

Mine is at 20% on all 5 widows none on the front. I like it but kind of wish I would of went with about 30%. It is a little dark for my liking at night, but my car will not be driven to much at night any way.
