I think the limit in PA is only 70 on the fronts which is basically nothing. I have 15 on my driver/passenger windows. No issues with cops (knock on wood). Our local cops seem to not care I've had them next to me at lights and what have you tons of times they don't bother to care.

I'm in CA, and LEGALLY we can't go darker than 70%??? When other states are like ~30. My question is, how dark is your guys' tint on your drivers/passenger windows? (the front two). And do you guys have trouble with the cops?
Here are the tint laws

PA you can only have 70% all around.

Which is essentially nothing on any of the glass

I need to take some pictures but I have 5% all around and 35% on the windshield. I love it and it's not that bad driving. Hardest thing is backing up but that's what a back up camera is for.

Edit: I've gotten a few warnings but never a ticket. And I now have a doctors note that allows me to have window tint due to light sensitive eyes.

Yup I had that on my last truck. You receive a sticker that goes above inspection sticker. I have had 2 corneal flash burns. I had 2.5% front, 2.5% over factory rears, and 35% on the entire windshield.

When you guys say "5%" or whatever, is that 5% on top of factory tint or it came out to be ~5% total?

I put 5% over factory front (which is basically non existent) and 15% over the factory rear making it almost as identical to the shade as the front windows

Legal tint in NC is 35% everywhere except windshield. I have 20% factory on the back windows, and as soon as it gets warmer probably gonna get 25% on front. Do you guys have to remove and re-tint every time you get inspected though?

35% sides, 20% rear, rear sides, and windshield banner no more than 5"

Anything else (in this area) is illegal for good reason

I have 5% all the way around, 35% on the whole windshield with a 5% percent strip. I have only been stopped once and that was a Mississippi State Trooper that let me go. Knock on wood that I don't get messed with. Oh and I've had it this way for a little over a year
