most tint for the 'thug effect"

alot of people do it for the cooling effect of the vehicle.....(what it was intended to do)

go 35% and pass inspections

I went legal with 35% myself and like it. I have seen the police give tickes for limo tint.

Go with a high quality tint such as Llumar, 3M, Johnson, Solor. LuLu is a nice tint.
