    Re: 15% tint pics

    When we lived in Augusta, my brother had 5% and 15% on the entire windshield. He never had to take it off. I don't think the cops ever said anything. Granted, though, that was over 15 years ago.
    It could always be worse...

    Re: 15% tint pics

    Out here 5%, 20%, 35% & 50% are the common tint shades. I go 5% around the rear and 35% on the front sides. I think the factory tint on my CC is %20 and I went with 5% over that.
    I've got some pis of the 5% & 20% if you want to see that.

    Re: 15% tint pics

    i had 20 on my sides and 5% on my back and never got bothered in the old truck. Georgia does have a loophole in our tint law. If you goto the eye doctor and tell him that bright light hurts your eyes you get a medical pass from the tint law. an exemption if you will. buddy of mine did it and he's been rolling with 15% all around including his windshield and been stopped 3 times for it. officer leaves him alone when he is shown the medical pass.

    Re: 15% tint pics

    I can't remember if this is 20 or 15 on my fronts. Either way, I wish I had done 5. I'll probably go back and darken them when I graduate. I just didn't want to have problems while I'm here at school.

    well the shop told me they put 5% on my front doors but on a tint meter, they read 4% on the front two. the rear three on mine are 2%. During the day, i can see out just fine, as you can see.

    Re: 15% tint pics

    i got 5% and i can just fine at night, 35% on the front windshield with 5% on the rest sucked when driving at night. IMO, go 5%, both 15% and 5% are illegal and if cop wants to pull you he'll pull and the ticket is the same price weather its 5 or 15.

    5 it, you'll love it. Like he said ^^^^ both are illegal so you might as well go 5 all the way around and your rears if factroy colored should come out around 2%. ITS SICK

    Re: 15% tint pics

    My tahoe has 15% on the front windows, factory back, 5% tint strip.



    I dont like 5% on the front two windows because at night at dark stop signs you kind of wounder if someone is coming or not. But 5% looks real nice. Thats my 2cents tho.

    Re: 15% tint pics

    yeah thats probably true but the last 2 times was for "unnecessary noise and acceleration" both were bs, but the first ticket i got all the way to the trail, but i slept late and missed it lol... not even going to try on this next one, since the 2nd douche cop gave me the same ticket again the judge isn't going to believe me lol.

    but at any rate, they werent pulling me over for my windows, however if they did see em, i would have been ticketed for that too... cops here are d-bags.
