Anyone work for a company that does window tint? Just wondering what brands of tints people use ect. I used some black magic tint from walmart today, worked decent but i know there is better out there, just seams like the cheap stuff doesnt stick as good as the stuff the pros use. Let me know.

Suntek is awesome too. I have had it on my truck 4 years with no problems no fading just as dark as the day it was put on. But to get some your likely to have to buy a big roll as they dont sale small amounts. I'm sure there is a tint shop near you that uses suntek.

I like the Luminar film I had applied last year (didn't trust myself to do a proper job in any reasonable amount of time). I went with 20% on the fronts, that same amount over the factory tint in the rear, and a 6" visor strip. It's not super dark but that amount on the fronts cuts out the UV and isn't so dark I have outward visibility problems or the cops hassle me for it so that's a good thing.

I've got suntek that was just installed on my truck a couple weeks ago... Guess we'll see how it turns out!

I can't say anything bad about the black magic you mention except I CANNOT find a window tint from wally world or a parts store that does not have a bluish tint from the inside. I like black or grey looking out from the inside and every brand I've tried always looks blue!

Cheap tint probably.

On another note: I know a guy who buys cheap tint by the roll and re-does his windows every few months. I'd rather get a brand that has a lifetime warranty that is guaranteed not to fade then to mess with that all the time.
