New Tint.... How dark?

So I'm getting my back windows re-tinted, for $140 including the removal of the old tint. But i'm not sure how dark to go... Right now I have 15% which is ok, but I would kinda like it to be a little darker, so i'm thinking of going to 5%, but am worried that that will be too dark... What do you think?

15% to match your rear windows... haveing the front darker then the back would look silly...

Mine had the factory tint in the back too and I had them do 5% on top of it on the back and the two ext. cab windows. I love it. The main reaso I did it was because I'm working on a box to put back there....out of sight and out of mind. I found blacking out those windows makes a huge temperature difference in the summer. My side windows are at 15% and blacking out the back made the sides look quite a bit darker too since there isnt any sun coming in through the back.

I say go 5% on the back on top of the factory. It is a little tougher to see out the back at night...other then that, I have no complaints.
