as a former state inspector myself, the best bet is going for inspection with the windows down... 2nd best bet is to make sure that the inspector is not a dick - but you really can never know....
if you tint to 20% and an inspector sees it, more than likely he will meter it, and you will fail. Tint testing is not something you do on every car - its only when you notice something dark
i have 35% on my car, and with the factory smoked glass it meters to 27% and personally, i think it is perfect, anything darker would just be asking to be hassled
