Tinting laws apply to every state. Some are just lighter than others. I also live in CA and window tint and the darkness of the tint does not seem to bother the CHP or my local PD. What will get you pulled over for sure is tint on the driver window or the front passenger window. I would tint my back windows however I want with no worry. If They do pull you over for it and your not a dick, you'll just get a warning to take it off or a fix it ticket to take it off.

I live in chicago so idk if laws are different but id go with a 35 percent all around. its actually not bad it keeps sunlight out and cops can still see you so win win. plus id rather have even tints all around den 5 percent in the back den nothing in the front.

i personally think that you should check your local laws, meanwhile, my opinion doesn't change, you should totally get tints. i have 35% all around on my 2012 accord coupe and i am loving it. it makes a huge difference. i would love to get 20% or darker but i live here in Chicago and 35 is the limit. here is a photo to show.

Leave your front windows alone. Your rear ones can get pretty dark. I have a 95 Grand Caravan with what Chrysler calls "Privacy" windows. You can see out but not in. Same tinting as on limousines. Just a suggestion as you asked for.

Legal limits are 70% front and there are no limits on the rear as far as darkness goes.

We'd recommend you consider a ceramic IR rejecting window film like FormulaOne Pinnacle or LLumar CTX. These films block invisible IR heat and comply with your strict tint laws but perform like darker metal or dyed films. See FormulaOne at
