20% or around that will match it because of the light coming in from the windshield.

changed from 35% tint to 25% tint for the front windows. 25% matches the back almost perfectly. 35% was way to light. both lamar tint 25 might be just a liiiiiiiiittle bit darker then the rear windows so whoever said 28% is probably spot on

35%


25%

This is the correct answer. You need to go darker on the front windows because they are more backlit than the rears by light coming through the windshield.

20% front matches the rears very well. The 28% rear was as measured by my tint guy, who knows his shit.

Here are some pictures for comparison purposes...these are all old except the last one, but the window tint has not changed. This is 20% front and OEM rear.

May be just in texas but here, only the driver and passenger windows cant be under 25% or something. All the other windows can be as a dark as you want.
