You might consider checking you local or state laws on that. Each state has their own rules about how much you can tint each window without being harassed by Jonny Law.

In WI it’s 50% for front side windows and 35% for rear side and rear windows.

Got it, I will check for the state law but does anyone know what percentage 10 today is currently on the back windows coming from the factory?

The rear is around 20%. The front windows are solar ray tinted around 70% so 25% will get the closest match. No shops around me do 25% so I have done 20% on the fronts and it ends up being a hair darker then the factory rear.

Gone do 5% this time around in the rear myself with 20% in the front row.

For my Rebel, I did LLumar Pinnacle Window Tint 15% on the front two / 5% front window tint strip and it's pretty impressive and I think matches okay, I do have the pano roof. Good quality tint, can see out clear as day without getting baked too much. I plan doing the entire front window on the TRX with the clear film followed by 5% tint strip.

FYI: Whether they are tinting a front window tint strip or entire front window, I would be proactive about this and throw a ton of towels above the BCM

I see people saying 5%. 50% is 10 times stronger? That doesn’t seem right?

Tint numbers are how much light is let through. 25% is twice as dark as 50% for instance.
