Windshield Tinting
 
I was looking into getting my whole windshield tinted and i was wondering how dark i should get them.. I know they are illegal in new york but ive heard that if you get into an accident with them it automatically is your fault even if the other person is to blame... I was also wondering what percent tint i should get done if the rest of my jeeper has 20 %

i wouldnt tint the windshield IMO. it's not worth it gettin pulled over and paying the fines. Paul(Ezy) has this windshield strip tint which i think looks good.

in nassau county its not really a problem with cops about the window tinting unless they realllyyy wanna **** you.. ive only had one cop say something to me and he just said take them off it makes it too hard to see at night.. plus the whole windshield looks amazingg tinted.. i should definetely not do more then 50% tho??

onlyy thing thats making me hold back from getting these is that i dont want to get into an accident and be entirely responsible when i shouldnt be..

I felt that way about tinted tails and being in a accident. But I had a girl clip my back bumper from behind and the cop said nothing about my tails. In fact he complimented me on how clean my truck was. LOL

Speedworld in Queens.



Whatever they charge, do it. They do excellent work.

my dad got his windshield done (he lives in the desert) and he went 60 or 65%...it is very subtle yet noticable when you are inside the car, and you can hardly tell outside looking in. This was on his BMW, so i do not know what the protocol is on the Jeep...I think Joe is right on, don't go more than 50% otherwise you will probably have the problems you stated. Please post pics :)

X2. Got my windshield strip done there. I wanted to do the whole windshield but thats way too dark living here in brooklyn. Cops will be on my arse. I think speedworld charged my friend who tinted his windshield 40% ... 100$. Def worth it. Plus they have a lifetime warranty.

A friend of mine who owns a tint shop and I were just talking about this he says that for most of his customers wanting this he will tint the window with 50% ( almost clear ) so that it reduces the uv transmittance and also reduces the glare at night. He will then do a strip of 20% or less to give the window a non tinted look.
