Default tint question...

In MI its illeagle to tint the entire front windows... so does anyone have pics or opinions on how it would look with the back windows (doors) and rear window tinted...

maybe i'll just take my chances and tint them all anyways, haven't decided yet. i won't do anything either way till spring/summer.

Darrel, there have been many tint threads lately. Please search, somewhere in one there is a tint law website.

Edit: sorry...working on honing my reading skills. Apparently it didn't work in this case.

oh i've already found plenty of sites stating the law and am aware of what it is.. i'm just wondering what it would look like with just the rear windows tinted. i've been watching cars out on the road for a while and haven't noticed many with just the rear windows done. thats all.

I would tint them all excluding windshield and just do the front tint lighter possible do them the same as one of the states closer to you for a referance and you can always play bumb if you get pulled over

I don't recommend tinting them all and taking your chances. My son got two tickets in one week before he got around to removing the front window tint, on a car he brought up from Florida.

I lived in detroit, didnt get into too much trouble for it. No tint tickets. If...if..you decide to tint the front and really dont want to attact too muc attention, do them 35% tint.

This is what 10% tint all around looks like. Havent got a ticket, but mind you, over on the east side cops are more ********

hi there,
ive got a 95 sse, and i live in illinois, wehre its also illegal to tint your front windows. i got mine tinted with a 20% smoke tint in the back and a 45% tint in front. ive had it for a good 6 mths without a problem. it looks good, and i really dont even worry about cops. check out my site to see the results.
