In certain states, laws surrounding window tint percentages are pretty lax. This makes people want to go with a darker tint in back if possible, but they are also finding out that this isn’t always ideal. For example, people have reported that tinting the rear window at 20 percent can make it difficult for seeing out the back and also backing up. I can imagine that might happen. Remember, safety comes first.
After all, 20 percent is pretty dark, and that is not even legal in many states. California I know wouldn’t allow that to happen, so you can just imagine there are even more conservative states regarding window tinting. Of course, the 20 percent tinting would be okay for some states. You have to choose the level of tinting that makes you comfortable when driving.
Try seeing out any window at five percent tinting, Some places do not offer certain tinting percentages. This one place I was looking at doesn’t offer the 15 percent tint option. However, they do offer the 5 percent tint option, which is the darkest option. I’m not even sure why 5 percent is available because that is close to completely tinted.
At even 20, 30 and 35 percent, it’s hard for people to see in the car, and that is what people are most concerned about. They want to be able to see out of the car, but they want the tint on the windows to look nice and dark and keep people from seeing inside. That’s the whole idea, right? Of course, the tints do have other benefits, too, such as keeping the interior of the car in the best shape. You don’t want the seats, dashboard and other parts of the car to start fading. As you can see, window tint percentages are important when making your selections.
