Just ordered 2013 Overland. Window Tint????
 
Just ordered a 2013 Overland. I live in Ohio. Wondering what to do with window tint. They say factory is 50% and state law says no more that 15% on front windows. The place I called uses Formula one film. Has anyone else used this?

Thanks

The OEM tint on the rear windows is equivelent to a 20% film. If you want to match your rear windows exactly which is what I recommend, you will want to ask for 20% film. Search my username I have posted many pictures of my Overland after I had the front windows tinted 20%. Looks amazing!!

Did you have a choice of saddle or black interior? And which did you order?

The rear windows do measure to about 20% with a tint meter but if you put 20% film on your front windows I bet it would be slightly darker than the backs but the front windows will look matched because of all the light being let through the windshield (assuming you haven't put any film on your windshield)

The reason that I bet it will actually be slightly darker (to a tiny meter) is the front windows measure to somewhere between 70% - 75% not 100. I put 50% film on my front windows and they now measure to 35% to stay within NC law.

So if you aren't worried about that tint being illegal go ahead and get 20% film on. Hope this helps guys.

My state of Mass only allows 35%...so I had the front windows done within state allowance.

Hello GCLimited,

While your state only allows 35%, have you had your windows tint metered? I have the same car as you, and we have the 35% rule here too.

Our state it's 50% fronts and unlimited rears on back. The tint place I called said the back windows with factory tint doesn't have UV protection in them compared to film tints. Also if someone wanted to break the back windows or if you got into an accident they would shatter unlike with film tint. If I do my windows I will have to get 50% fronts cause its a misdemeanor for the installer to install anything lower and get my rears to around 30%.
