Window tint asap?

About to drop off my truck at the tint shop and im torn on what to get.. I always do 15% all around.... but since these are so dark on the back already on the CC (i was told factory 15%) i think more 15% on top is going to be too dark on back...

what i was thinking was 15% on front, something a little lighter on rear ?, and probably 15% on the sunroof.... what yall think? or does everybody just do 15 all around? def want it darker than the factory but still want to be able to see backing up....

Re: Window tint asap?

On my 6.4 i did 15% on front and strip to match back.. It was darker than the back.. I dont think 15% on top of factory 15% will be too dark.. On my old truck i had 5% ontop of 15%.. I liked it but the state troopers didnt

Re: Window tint asap?

I would go 15% on the front, across the windshield ,and leave the back window alone as i always do so i can see at night while Pulling my Boat... but thats Me :~)

15% is what i got last time and it was Pretty close the the rear factory windows close enough you couldn't tell the difference!

Re: Window tint asap?

Well it's a little unorthodox, but here's what I had on my 06 and I plan to do the same on the 11. Front doors 35%, Back doors 20%, Back window each side 20% but the center section of the rear window I used 35%. You couldn't tell the difference from the outside, but it made a huge difference at night from the inside just having that center section a little bit lighter.

This time around I'm going 20% on the front doors. I let the guy talk me into staying legal the last time. As far as the sunroof, I would go 5% on that. It's not like you really need to see anything through it anyway.

Re: Window tint asap?

I had limo on top of my factory tint, looks awesome. I did a dark tint on my roll downs, but could not see the back of my 36 foot gooseneck at night in the mirrors, so I removed it to be safe.

In BC, we can't put any tint on the roll downs,

Re: Window tint asap?

i was staring at it in the parking lot when i dropped it off and for now im going with 15% on the front doors and strip across the top and bottom windsheild and thats it... going to see how it looks and most likely will end up going back to do the rears at some point just afraid double 15 is gonna be too much on the rear...
