    Actually. In California, it is legal to tint your front windows. It has to be no less than 88% but there are some exceptions where you can lower it to 70% VLT rating, Anything below that is illegal for the front. The back windows has no limit. You can tint them as dark as you want as long you have both side mirrors.

    The windshield only allows the 29" below top portion of the window to be tinted. If you tint the whole windshield it's illegal, plus it's stupid. Why would you risk your life tinting the front windshield? I don't understand that.

    I had to study for this while I was training to be a CHP.....obviously it didn't work out. I'm thinking about applying again next year.

    Virginia "allows" 35% all around also because the inside of your car is still visible. The only way you'll get pulled over for that is by some ******* cop dieing for brownie points. Most tint shops who only do legal tint will do 35%

    In Colorado, it's legal to darken windows behind the driver's seat as dark as you want them IF the front windows, driver's side and passenger's side, along with the windshield are at least 70% (clear automobile glass with NO tint).



    Or, you can tint all of the windows in the car except the windshield to a maximum of 27%. Remember though that at no time, can your two front side windows be darker than 27%. Also, in Colorado no mirrored or reflective tint is allowed on any window of the vehicle.

    Utah is 43% up front and any % on the rear as long as it is not a reflective surface.

    I'm not sure if Ohio is one here, saw it once and what the other person had put was wrong. Here is the breakdown:
    Windshield - no more than 6 inch eyebrow up to 5%
    Front two windows - no darker than 50%
    Any rear windows (Includes sides and rear) - up to 5%

    most cops that I have encountered are lenient about it so long as its not 5% all around or limo tint. When I got pulled over in the past as a courtesy I would roll down all of my windows a bit so that the officer can see inside the vehicle.

    I'm a state inspector in N.C. Window tint anything 32% and above passes. You cannot tint your front shield what so ever. Subaru Outbacks, Foresters, Tribecas all fall under the SUV category if anyone tells you other wise and tries to fail you for tint in North Carolina tell them to call the DMV. Ive seen alot of people i work with try and classify the Foresters and Outbacks as Station Wagon and thats no bueno. So tint as dark as you want on the rear windows and rear windshiled. The front tint still needs to be 32% or above. **** i've passed a couple of Foresters with limo tint on the rear.
