Whats everyone have for tint %
« on: October 03, 2012, 09:40:16 PM »
Im getting ready to have my widnows tinted and just wondering what everyone is using % wise .. I use to run 5% on all my other cars, but its just to dark could hardley see out of the back.. Was thinking 20 rear and maybe the same on the sides.

% of tint is very important George and is one of those things you just have to go with what feels right for you. More important is the type of tint and the company that puts it on. You are about to find out that a corvette is the most expensive car to tint because of its curved rear glass.
Find a good shop close to you that will give you a lifetime guarantee...
I have 20% now................... Most of my cars get 30%

Mine was done by Richies guy. I have 5 or 15 on the back and 35 up front. I would do my sides darker next time.

Yes i really like the 30..   You can see really well out of it and it doesn't attract attention as the 15% does... Good Choice  *$
