    27% front windows

    I believe the rest are unrestricted.

    True...I got pulled over by the CHiPs for tint, he really just wanted to check out the car. He was like "How do like this car?" "My wife wants one of these." "She watches rally on Speedvision" "Do you think she needs the rear diff cover?".

    35% front, and unrestricted for the rears.

    Since this seems like a handy reference, I'll go ahead and make it a sticky

    Actually,

    You got it backwards. The % (I think) is the amount of light that the tint lets through. Hence, the lower the number, the darker the tint. Not sure what limo tint is, but I don't think it's 0%, cause that would mean no light would get in at all I think ??

    You are correct about the ammount of light and the percentages. 0% would be limo tint, it doesnt let any light into the car. Thats why most limos have the interior lights on allt he time. Alot of limos use 5-15% and almost all companies advertise those percentages as limo tint. My friend had 0% all around, he got so many tickets he took it all off. Crazy guy. But I live in IL and does anyone know the real laws here. I am planing on doing window tint. I want to do 35% in front doors and 15% in back. If osmeone knows give me a holla! peace.

    I'm beginning to think that the above site isn't correct. Like I said, I live in Michigan. A friend of mine just got pulled over specifically for tint. I'm guessing she as 20% all around except for the windshield. She has a court date for it. So I don't think the above site is right. I'm going to call a few different police stations tonight to find out.

    I really don't want to get my windows tinted only to start getting pulled over.

    I check in IL you can have anything on the back, 50% in the front, and a 6 inch sun one any %. I am going to go 5% in the back, 20% in the front, and a 20% sun screen. The owner of the tint place has that and he never got pulled over for it. So its kool. IL isnt very strict about these laws.

    Edit: when in doubt, check the Vehicle Code.

    (625 ILCS 5/12-503)
    (a) No person shall drive a motor vehicle with any sign, poster,
    window application, reflective material, nonreflective material or
    tinted film upon the front windshield, sidewings or side windows
    immediately adjacent to each side of the driver. A nonreflective tinted
    film may be used along the uppermost portion of the windshield if such
    material does not extend more than 6 inches down from the top of the
    windshield.

    No tints in front of the B Pillar. My Co-worker got pulled over for it in Morton Grove. That was the only reason he got pulled over, BTW. Gotta watch it in Morton Grove and Skokie.

    Wagons can have more tint

    I was told that wagons can have dark tint on all of the rear windows but not the fronts, because they are wagons. For the same reason that SUV's and Minivans come from the factory with dark tint.

    from the very first post: I was wondering where you got this info? Everything else I've heard is 70% (i.e. almost no tint at all ) so I was wondering if you got it backwards? I'm a resident of PA, but I mostly live in MD, so I'm thinking I can get away with 35%. Well, I'll try at least

    Yeah I'm from PA also and I checked with the cops before I was gonna tint my last car and they said "trucks and suv's can have any windows tinted with as dark as they want to go, but cars can only have everything behind the drivers windows and they can only be 70% and 3inch strip on windshield" so thats 70% on rear sides and back window and as dark as you want on top 3 inches of front windshield.
