15% all the way around. not to dark not to light IMO. maybe cause the car is white the contrast comes out better. i have 5% on my wifes titan it looks awesome but its just too much. all you can see is the reflection of the stereo and dash when your trying to back up/park at night. i guess if you had a back up cam it would be fine.

35% on 2 side 20% on back 3. Don't know what that equals in addition to the factory 75% tint. Has a hint of blue in the tint to go with the paint color.

Looks nice I kind of wish I did 20 all over. 35 is the limit in illinois but cops can only measure windows that roll down because that's all their equipment can do. So I stayed legal in the front.

They make a 2 piece tint meter that measure the fixed windows.

All I know is the tint guy told me the cops where I live have ones the they clip over the top of the window and it had to be rolled down. The make better ones but they're not in the liberal broke state I live in. The tint guy had a really good one

I have this same tint and setup except I have 20% on side quarters and the rear. I also did a strip across the top windshield, I believe that is 10 or 15. I'm very happy with my choice.... The Formula One Pinnacle Series and smaller windows block out about the same amount of light as the Classic grade 20% tint I had on my previous car (Ion coupe).

I would say find pics of the color Camaro you'd like, and then compare various window tints on that color.

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.

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
