Default Window tint advice and pictures needed!

Wanting to get my windows tinted in the next couple weeks. would like to see some pics and hear some advice from people who have learned from experience. i'm thinking of putting 20% on my front windows and over the factory back window and sides. i also am thinking of adding a brow but was thinking of doing 5% to better cover the ram logo behind the rear view mirror. would it look strange to have a 5% brow with everything else being 20? Does it make enough of a difference to pay the extra to go over the stock? Any advice is appreciated!

Whatever you do, make sure the tint is in compliance with your state/provincial law. Google "window tint laws" for guidance. Also be aware that even if you are in compliance with your home law, you can still be pulled-over and ticketed if you visit another jurisdiction with stricter tint laws. Pennsylvania law doesn't allow ANY tint on the front windshield, even thought many vehicles come equipped that way from the factory.

laws smawls. If you want 20% chances are you are "breaking the law", whatever it's like a $60 ticket IF you get one, in most places. If you want to know your consequences, then sure look it up. Everyone and their mother has tinted windows, I wouldn't be scared to go 20%. The stock back windows are already 20% so no sense in covering it up with 20%.....

I think the brow would look fine no matter what % you got. But, make sure the tint company uses the right kind of tint for these new windows. If they are good, they should know that anyway.

Don't waste your money going over the OEM smoked rear windows. It'll look darker than the front and therefor unbalanced with the 20% you intend to do.

Put 20% on your fronts and walk away.

Gone fishin mentioned to make sure the tint shop used the right kind of tint for these new windows. I wasn't sure what he meant by that

the new glass in some newer vehicles has something different about it. Some "safety" recipe. The old laminate won't hold as well, so there is a special kind of tint they use now. they guy a couple posts before me mentioned it as well. i think there is some sort of stamp in the corner that indicates the different glass

you probably won't get pics of that. No one tints on the tint. Well maybe a few, but are you trying to get the windows DARKER in the rear? Is that why you want 20% over the 20%?

Tint is tint man, not hard to visualize. 20% is really common and on a lot of trucks on this forum
