    Whats the percent for the factory window tint? And what percent do most people use for the front windows?

    I live in PA and your only allowed 70% on all windows, so I know its gonna be illegal but I know a bunch of people with tinted windows on their trucks and have never gotten pulled over, so I guess they are pretty lenient with trucks.

    I put 35% on the front windows of my Avalanche and it matches almost perfect...

    I'd like them to match pretty well, but if anything i'd rather the front be a lil lighter, I really don't want the the front to be darker then the rear.

    On my Silverado the factory tinted windows are stamped with what percentage they are. Mine from the factory is 16% and I had 18% put on the front doors and 20% over the factory tinted back glass.

    I know i went with 35% on the front windows on all of my trucks and it matched really nicely with the rear window tint and was a bit lighter.. Here in MN legal is 50% and i never got bothered with on the front windows.. And if it is a factory option on your rear windows then usually the cops dont look at them but they will look at the fronts from my experience.

    In Arizona you can only have 33% or lighter on the front by law...the rear windows can be as dark as you want. I had limo on all my windows and have been stopped once or twice and given a "fix it ticket".....never changed it however.

    it depends on the year of your truck, 2007+ the rear windows will match well with 35%. If your truck is 2006 or older, 20% will match up well.

    I put 20% Black Magic tint on the front of my 02 silverado and it matches up very nicely.

    20 is about perfect for matching.

    Thanks for the help. It looks like I'm gonna have to try 20% now lol. I've noticed the cops only really care about tint on rice burners so hopefully I'll be safe haha.
