The stock tint measures 75%, I put 50% on my car and it measures right at 37-38%, legal limit for me is 35...I wanted it darker, but I want to be hassled even less.

I had 5% on the back and 30% on the fronts, got pulled over. Removed and installed 15% and got pulled over last week after a year. Removed and installed 5% all around except the front windshield. I wanted to go 30% on the front windshield but I'm worried.Will post pictures.

HOW DARK CAN WINDOW TINT BE IN CALIFORNIA?


Darkness of tint is measured by Visible Light Transmission percentage (VLT%). In California, this percentage refers to percentage of visible light allowed in through the combination of film and the window.
  • Windshield | Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 4 inches of the windshield.
  • Front Side Windows | Must allow more than 70% of light in.
  • Back Side Windows | Any darkness can be used.
  • Rear Window | Any darkness can be used.
Windows behind the driver can be as dark as a vehicle owner desires. But the windshield must be clear. And the front side windows -- on both the driver's and passenger sides -- must allow at least 70 percent of light to penetrate into the vehicle.
Auto manufacturers make cars with a light tint because federal rules mandate a minimum of 70 percent of light get through.(like our Camaros)

Also cops enforce California's tint law the way they do the speed limit: They let people slide up to a point.

I'm in Everett, WA and I always go with 5% all around. I've never been given any grief for my window tint, loud exhaust, blacked out tail lights or no front license plate on any of the cars I've owned here in Snohomish County.

If you're going to get tint, then go dark. You're going to get pulled over for it regardless of the percentage. Yeah you may last a little longer with 35, but they'll get you eventually. The only downside to 5% is that it IS difficult to see out, even during the day sometimes. Go 20% for safety reasons.
