If you dont want any major issues with seeing at night... i wouldnt go 35% or higher. My 15% tints do make it a little difficult to see at night at times... it takes some getting used to.

Iíd recommend 35%. My wife has 35% on her car and it doesnít really cause too much interference at all with night visibility. I have 20% on my trep, and itís a little difficult to see out of at night, but not too terrible.

I only went as dark as 35 on my back windows because I hate the look of having 2 extremely different tint darknesses and legally I'm not supposed to have any tint on the fronts (I have 2 tickets to prove it...)

it really depends on the lighting though - sometimes you can barely tell there is tint on the fronts, and other times you can barely see through... these 2 pics kind of show it...

I am the same way. I didn't want two different shades of tint, and Ohio's law is 50%, which is hardly noticable at all, so I went with 35%, allows enough light at night without making it difficult to see. Plus, I'd be sure to be pulled over with 20%. It also depends on the interior of your car, and whether or not you have a sun roof. I have dark interior which makes the tint appear darker plus no sunroof to allow any extra light. Also I have a light color paint, which also makes it appear darker versus a dark color vehicle. These are a few things to look at, hope this helps!
