Ya can't limo tint all around, here, and still register the car for the street.

If you're gonna have AC---tint 'em, personally I think all cars look better with the same tint on all windows.

Light tint on front doors/dark on rear doors or quarters---looks dorky

Drag racer only?---hell, don't even bother with the tint--spray paint black

I like tint, but it does depend on the vehicle.

I have to agree with the same shade of tint on all the windows. The windows on my 67 Firebird are tinted and I love the look of it.

I have the darkist gray tint allowed in PA. in my Terraplane street rod.

I agree with same % tint on the side windows. On my truck I've got 20% on the back, and the side glass will have 35%.

My boy went with the dark tint and I don't mind. He can't see if the car behind him is the fuzz so he has to keep it slower than before the tint. Only time I hate it is when I'm driving because I've got to keep it slow also...

Yes for looks. Not sure it helps the heat much. Hard to see out at night with even 35%.

Federal law says maximum 35% for any vehicle 94 or newer. None on windshields except a 6 inch band at the top.

Lots of illegal vehicles in Arkansas. Cops allowed to stop you randomly for tint check. Usually a "fix it" ticket, and present the vehicle for police inspection. Give them bs, and they'll have your car towed.

only slightly off topic:

Lots of illegal vehicles with illegal covert "police" stickers on the vehicles. In AR they use a small 1 1/2 by 3 inch striped sticker that is black, blue, black to indicate ARMED POLICE OFFICER on board...... Lots of teenagers and 75 yr old people with these stickers that their sons, grandsons, uncles, fathers, etc have put on their cars so other cops won't give them tickets..... total BS.... and illegal but done everyday. Talked to an 83 yr old man yesterday who's son is a deputy sheriff that put it on his dad's mini van. :nono:

If you drive a vehicle with a sticker and illegal tint on the windshield the cops will not stop you.

You know, any ticket to a stickered car will be expunged before court... It's termed "The BLUE code". (The boys in blue stick together)

I have been compiling a list of suspicious vehicles to turn into the state police.
