better check your state laws,in many states you can only have original factory tinted windows,you can't tint your own .

the percentages mean how much light has to be able to come through. My parents are mechanics and they are not allowed to pass someone for a safety inspection if there percentage is too low. However is there is a law in your state about it, the people putting the tint on WON'T tell you. In NC I believe 33% of light or more has to come through on the driver and passenger side windows and windshield, otherwise, it's illegal. 5% would be VERY dark. 25% would be way less dark than 5% My parents acutally have to use a machine on the windows to test the amount of light that can come through on the inspection. This is mainly a law so the police can see if you have your seat belt on, or who is driving if they need to.
