I dont really want people to see in. But here where i live if the cops cant see you at all they will pull ya and write ya ticket. So i figured you can still see in 35 % but its still got a darker shade to it than factory.

What do y'all think about tinting the back, does it mess up the slideing window. And what is your visiblity like at night and during the day? How dark would you recommend?

This is on a bright sunny Alabama day. 20 on the side, 50 on the front, all polarized. The 20 kills the backup lights at night. The 50 is ok at night for the headlights. Wearing polarized sunglasses and the polarized tint makes for a hallucaginic color meld.

My main reason to go all the way around is because of the heat and glare in the summer.

50% is really just good for reflective reasons correct?

The tint has a little reflection to it, but if you look at my first pic, you can see how much glare it removes. It is also great for "reflections" from other cars and from the hood. At night, you can tell that the tint is there when you are driving in areas without street lights. It isn't bad, but you lose some of the peripheral light from your headlights. During the day, you don't feel it at all. I can stand not having sunglasses, but still wear them most of the time because it isn't quite enough.

@TacoVerde - Yeah, my next set of sunglasses will be non-polarized for leaving in my truck.
