In TX you can only go as low as 25% on the fronts while the rears are completely exempt from regulation. As tint generally comes in 50%, 35%, 20%, and 5%; 35% is the lowest you can go on the front. Going with 20% on the rears allows you to go a bit darker but isn't much visually different from the fronts when viewed from outside. It's pretty much the tinting std combination down here.
So illegal in AZ on the front windows and windshield .
Thanks for the pics. I have white/white 21 model 3 and a tint appt on the 15th of this month so seeing these pics and options helps a ton. I'm thinking 15 back window and on back window with 25 on front as I believe legal in WA State is 24.
Are you sure about this? According to California Tint Laws - 2020 & 2021 - Car Tinting Laws and it's reference Codes Display TextIn california, it is not legal to tint the front driver and passenger windows at all (none), yet you will find like 50% of "nice" cars with some form of window tint on those windows. By "nice" cars I mean, pretty much 50% of all BMW / Audi / Mercedes / Ford F150 (non work) trucks / Lexus / Acura, and ANY car that has a "sporty" trim you will find like 50% of those with front window tint.
I have had some form of window tint (somewhere between 50% and 20% depending on car color and interior) on every car I have had for the past 20 years here in CA and have received (2) window tint tickets over that 20 year span.
So, yeah, not legal, but dont so much that police wont usually stop you for just window tint, unless they are annoyed.
I would imagine AZ (with similar hot weather) might be similar.
Back on thread topic....
I have 3M crystalline tint all around. 70% on windshield (not noticeable in the slightest from outside or in the vehicle, but helps with heat rejection), and 20% all all other windows, including the glass roof, and rear window glass in 1 piece.
