    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.

    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.

    Saskatchewan Canada:

    Both rear and back windows can be painted black (as dark of tint has u want)
    Passenger and driver front window must stay "tintless" but u can get away usually with 30%
    Front window must be clear of anything including stickers or radar detector

    In Saskatchewan with the minimum cop patrolling you can get away with tinting most windows without being bothered just don't go with 5% tint on the front windows

    You can also usually get away with having some stickers and a radar detector on ur front window, if u are pulled over just explain that u were unaware of the law. Worst you're going to get is a ticket (usually don't have to remove when caught either)

    State of New Jersey Tinting Laws:


    By law you can apply any non reflective window film to your rear windows. Rear windows are the windows behind the driver and the front passenger. Non reflecitve films, such as mirror film, are not allowed by NJ State Laws.

    By law you can not apply any window film to the front driver or front passeger windows unless you obtain a Medical Sun-Screening license from the NJ State Motor Vehicle Commisiion. For Medican Sun-Screening guidelines see below.



    State of New Jersey Medical Sun-Screening Guidelines:


    With a Medical Sun-Screening license you can apply window film to your front windows based on these guidelines.

    Windshield - You can apply a clear (UV) film which has a visible light transmission of 70% and a visible light reflection of 8%. What this means. This means that you can apply clear film to your windshied which will decrease the amount of light transmission by 30%. This film will provide a 99% UV light reduction.

    Front Windows - You can apply a shade window film which has a 60% visible light transmission and 8% visible light reflection. What this means. This means that you can apply a window film that will block 40% of visible light transmission. A 60% window film is a very light colored film which will block 99% of UV rays and provide you with minimal darkening of the glass. Please note that a 60% window film is lighter than your typical "smoke" film.


    Each piece of glass that is tinted for a medical purpose must have a small decal with the installers information applied. This will be done for each piece of glass.


    *Please be aware that NJ DMV Inspection Stations use a window film meter to test the window film during your cars inspection. If these guidelines are not followed your car will fail the inspection.

    Nevada or at least Las Vegas is: 35F 18R



    There are 80% window films though that still block out as much UV as the tinted film so you can have your windshield "tinted", save those gauges and dashes and get the windshield tinted too
