Tint Recommendations

Sometime soon, I will be having tint installed onto my 6GA as the other two SUVs in the garage has tint from the dealer when bought. I am not sure what is the recommended amount of tint is, but I plan on having roughly 10%-15% on the rear windshield and rear windows and 20%-25% on the front windows, and if possible 80% on the front windshield. What would you guys suggest on the percentage of tint for each window?

I went with 20% on mine because of the beige interior. Looks really good, IMO. I think 10% is probably too dark at night or in parking garages. Especially when backing up. I sometimes have to roll down my windows to back into spots in the garage at work.

i could see doing the Side windows/Rear but why would you ever Tint the Front?


i would put this in the same category as people who tint their Front/Rear headlights/tailights



yes it can look good esp. on blacked out rides but you are severely limiting light output for looks & more importantly your safety as well as the safety of others on the road

I suggest getting the same transparency all around. I had a Civic in college where I put 35 on the front and 20 on the rear (legal limit in WA at the time) and it kind of looked dumb because it wasn’t consistent.

I put 20 front and back on mine and really like it. Though with the light colored interior and windshield letting in a lot of light, the front still looks a little lighter than the back. But it doesn’t look dumb and inconsistent like my Civic did

Agree. Get the same shade front, back and rear window. This is 35%. Looks dark at night but almost see thru in the day.

I was considering getting 15% all around, but then I need it to be visible for the front windows, in which the guy said 22%. I will see about getting 20%, but my friend who has an 09 Atlima (black on black) got a lighter tint on the front and darker tint on the rear, and he had the same guy do the tint on his. And more likely, I may end up taking this car to Miami for college.

Might have been a miscommunication between me and the tint guy, but will see what he puts, as he said he is going to put the legal limits on mine and he quoted me $169 and will be coming over to my place to install it.

I rolled 5% all around in my '97 Civic, '02 Accord, '05 Toyota 4Runner, and I'm about to do the same in my '15 Accord Sedan. i know there is nothing legal about any of it, but this Florida sun is no joke, and that tint was a life saver!!

Hey guys! I'm trying to decide between which brand tint I should go with. Should I go with SunTek or Rayno? I heard Rayno film is conductive and contains metals, does anyone know more about that?
