50% front tints, anyone?

IIRC the factory is around 18-20%, but for the front driver and passenger I was thinking of having 50% instead - anyone else do this? Ohio law is 50% front and the back can be as dark as limo.

Anyone has pics of their JGC with different tint percentages?

Re: 50% front tints, anyone?

Go 35% on the fronts if you want to stay "legal." I'm originally from Marion, OH and had 35% on my fronts and got pulled over 3 times and was never questioned about it once because there was still a contrast between the front and back set of windows. It sort of shows you made an effort to stay legal haha. I seriously think you will regret it and want to go darker if you only got 50%. Just my 2 cents

Just found out no tint is allowed in the front windows in NJ. :-(

While technically there is no tint allowed in NJ, there is no safety check so the inspection people can't fail you.

I tinted my windows and have had no issue. generally I don't push my luck speeding/ red light wise so I don't have issues.

Re: 50% front tints, anyone?

I have 50% on my windshield. I'll replacing it with 40% soon.

50% just makes it look like dirty glass.

I say go darker. Something like 30% or 20%.

Re: 50% front tints, anyone?

50% is a waste of money, you barely can tell the difference. I also did 35% and like mentioned earlier, just enough of a contrast from the rears that I haven' t had any issues with LEOs.

Re: 50% front tints, anyone?

here's 50% on my BMW, it looks just right - I'm not a fan of dark tints, but the rear glass is 35%.



and 35% on rear
