my boy had 5% on his civic and it was a biatch to see through at night. 20% is the limit but you should have no trouble getting by with 15%

5% all around here. No problems what so ever. Its really not that hard to see out of at night, atleast for me. My husband has really bad eyes so he rolls down the window as needed.

Incorrect!

I have had enough tint tickets to know the legal limit is 27% on the fronts and anything on the backs and rear, however most cops in South Florida will still let 20% slide on the fronts which is why everyone thinks it's 20%. I used to think the same till a while ago.


I've got 1% all around and 35% on the front window (yea, got a ticket to prove the 1% ). Just whatever you get, be smart about it... don't get 5% and drive next to every cop with your windows up. The way I drive when I see a cop in sight, I roll down my windows till I pass the cop or the cop passes me.
