If ALL of the windows are tinted then it's illegal. The front ones need to be see-though.

Default Re: tinted windows ???

idk about LA.

where i am at, tint becomes illegal at 20% the cops have some kind of light reader that can tell what % the tint is. anything under 20% is ok.

i also think that the front window must remain non-tinted as well.

most places you goto to have this done should be able to tell you the legal limit for LA. hope this helps...

just make sure that people can see inside your car. You only get a ticket if they are to dark. Alittle tint is ok. And the front windshield cant have tint

Oh my gosh. My mother got a ticket for tinted windows before, he said "we need to see if we can find criminals" or some crap. I dont understand, he drove by tuns of people with tinted windows. My advice, dont get tinted windows, just because it looks cool, please only get it if the sun is hurting your eyes etc.

there are different laws in different states check you state law you maybe able to put some tint on. The lower the number the darker the tint.

dawg, u better not do it...u see the 5-0's (police) are right outside...streets are hot and they're on fire to catch everyone...i live in Los Angeles too so i feel you homes...if you go to a shop they'll do it for you but then they're not gonna say its illegal..it would just cost you to put it on and to remove it..

I have heard that it is illegal as well. However, my good friend's mom got her Accord's windows tinted, and they've never had a problem. We live in Long Beach. I think you could away with it if they just weren't heavily tinted, and just lightly tinted for the coolness effect.

Well the only reason you could get and will get a ticket is if your side windows are tinted too, not just the back. It's OK to have your windows tinted only the back ones but not your side ones, those are most likely to get you tickets. and if you do get them tinted try to not get them tinted very dark. a light tint will do.
