    I got 5% (limo) all around except the windshield . I like it helps keep the truck cool in the summer. Only down side is its pretty hard to see at night.

    I have 2 and 1/2 on all windows besides the front door windows, and they're 5. I can't see jack shit at night. I have to roll the windows down any time I am backing up, and have to open the back glass sometimes just to make sure nothing is behind me.

    Check your state laws.

    In Colorado you can go limo on the rear windows and rear windshield so long as you have no tint on the front windows.

    Here's the most up-to-date law list I can find

    Pink slider.
    I have 20 up front because it matches the rears.

    I wish I had 35 all around tho.
