Hi....can you guys help me out ? Im gonna get my wifes windows tinted..and want to make sure she still has proper visibility at night...can you adivise me on tint percentages ? I live in Hamilton Ontario and Im gonna get it tinted at ziebart because they have a lifetime warranty and I actually beleive they will be around in 5 years. any advice would be appreciated
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!
