Default So I made an appointment to have my windows tinted and...

The guy tells me that the 20 percent tint I want will be illegal. They have no problem doing it...but they have to inform me of this. I live in Missouri where the legal tint is 35 percent. I want the front windows to match the back/rear, and don't think the 35 percent would look as nice. Is this something LEO's really pay attention to? I want the darker tint, but don't want to steady any extra attention.

I went with the legal on the front and it isn't that different. Had experience with a car a few years ago where the authority made me peel it off there on the side of the road to make a point. It was within his right to impound or make me remove it according to the city ordanance where I was traveling through. At least he only made me do the drivers window there on the roadside.

Sucks to hear that..

Glad you like the tint though.

I went with the 20% on both fronts & couldn't be happier.

I went with 20% to match the back. A good friend in law enforcement told me they would never pull me over for that (honestly 20% does not even look illegal cause you can still see inside a little bit). He said tint is a reason to pull you over as a probable cause to check you out for another possible violation (like smoke pouring from the windows, saw you tipping a can/bottle, etc.). But in the end, you never know so do what you feel comfortable with.

They won't necessarily stop you for the tint but if they stop you for a primary offense, they may write you up for the secondary offense of illegal tint too.

That is, of course, if illegal tint is not a primary offense (like speeding, reckless driving, failure to observe a traffic control device, etc...) and the cop who sees you ain't having a bad day.

It's 35 here too but I have 20 on the front windows to match the rear windows.

I also got my tint darker than I should have by law, but dam does it look good when the front matches the back!



In the end you have do do what you are comfortable with. It's tough though looking around here and seeing some trucks with the matching tint. You know you shouldn't do it, but want to anyway.

I did the windows on my deepwater blue ram to 20% too. After seeing your truck, I may yank the chrome step bars off too.

I also live in Missouri, and on my last truck the tint shop said they would go as dark as I wanted, but they would not warranty it if it was darker than legally allowed. I ended up going with the legal tint to get the warranty. I have not yet tinted my Ram, but when I do, I will just go with the legal tint.
