I talked to the guy thats going to tint my car. He said. "I can do 25% in the front & up to limo black in the back.." I'm going to buy the premium package... 200 dollars & it comes with a lifetime warranty.

So... how dark should I go? I have a "Apex Silver" evo. What do you think would look nice? I've currently got the stock BBS wheels but I'm thinking of going with black wheels later on for a set of all season tires.

I would go as dark as possible. 3% or 5% for me. But it really boils down to what you like best.

30% is the legal limit for all the States. Some states dont give a rats ass some do. If you want to have a piece of mind just get 30% and call it a day. I have a 30.6 all around.

I went with 30 all around and it looks good. I have an apex silver as well. Though I wish it could be a tad bit darker. I had 20% of my scion tc and it was hard to see out at night but great during the day...

I did 5% all around except the front windshield. I can not really see at night and I am always rolling the windows down when turning to dodge a curb or to park.

but it does look good. lol I am thinking about taking it off and trying another shade. maybe 20% all around

35% is legal limit for Oregon, don't know where you got your info because most states vary.

OP, for tint laws, in case you were wondering, check out this website:

man my car would have so many freakin dents if my car was that dark lol
after driving a tank with the hatch down and being able to see very little, its kinda the same thing with my car..lol. Backing up into my parking spot at home and going into underground parking lots at the mall, ill put the windows down though...lol.






Also to add... In the 3+ years i have lived in Edmonton, i had 5% all around on my cobalt, 5% all around on my 370z, 5% front/1% rear on my SRT-10 RAM and 5% on my evo, i have never been pulled over by the cops :yay:
