Window Tint Percentages and Pictures

I'm sure there is a thread here for this but I can't search on my phone. I still have not received my camaro yet but am planning on getting the windows tinted when I get it. I am only allowed 35% here in WA state so was hoping for some pics maybe some of you have with that same percentage. But feel free to post pics of darker or lighter too

I live in oregon and its 35 percent here too but if you wanna be a rebel I would def go with 20. 35 is just too light IMO, 20 looks a lot better.

I have limo (5%) all around; back window and side windows. I decided not to tint the windshield because I wanted to actually be able to see at night!

5% is too much.
I'll probably got with 15% on the back window & 25% on the sides.
NJ cops are a pain with it....

correct, depends on how much you feel you can get away with, and if not, you don't mind a ticket here and there.

This is 35% tint on the side windows and the rear window. MN is a 50% state. 35% looks really dark when compared to 50%.

Keep in mind that the Camaro has small windows, so the tint appears darker as well.

One last thing, the windows already have tinted glass from the factory. So when I put on my 35% tint, my windows actually tested at 28%.

I think a lot of it depends on what color your car is on the outside as to how dark your windows look too.

Those lowered cars look sinister. I love that with the tint.

I went with Formula One Pinnacle Series ceramic tint. 35% on doors, 15% on quarter and rear windows. Not quite as dark as I'd like but keeps me legal and still looks good.

One thing to keep in mind is that pictures can be deceiving as to the perceived darkness of tint. Depending on how I have my polarizing filter set on my camera, I can have black windows (last pic) or I can have the windows appear lighter (first pic). You really need to see samples of the actual tint you are going to use on an actual car before committing to getting the install done.

Florida is 28% and I went with 15% on my SS ... With the factory tint, I'm around 8% ... And yes at night I tend to drive with my windows down as much as possible ...
