What tint on the F250?

Well, I'm STILL undecided on what tint to go with! Lol

I'm taking the F250 CC in tomorrow to get the window tint stripped, and to get them retinted. I can't decide on what percent to go with though..

I'm thinking either 5% or 10% on the rear and rear side window

and then either 10% or 15% on the front side windows...

Any advice?


50% is legal on the front sides, so.. if I'm going to break the law and risk a ticket, I might as well go all out right? haha.

Now that I've posted it, its probably too late to add a poll huh?


I want either 10% on rear and rear sides and 10% on front sides

OR

5% on rear and rear sides and 10% on front sides

Or 5% rear and rear sides, or 10% on the front sides..

It depends on the town. The Police in town are pretty... bored. They'll pull anybody over for anything they possibly can. Me and a buddy got pulled over cause he had a ball on his factory bumper, on his Ranger. We got pulled over at night because the ball was obstructing the view of the rear plate, even though the ball had been on the truck as long as he owned it. They get bored and it only gives them an easier reason to stop and hassle you.

That EXACT same thing happened to me! Was bullcrap too, pulled me over only to say they couldn't read the plate because of the ball.. frick, the thing was on there so long it was rusted and I had to PB it to get it off... haven't needed it since I got my hitch put on though..



On Topic:

x3 on 15% all the way around, its safe because you can actually see through it -laughs- looks bad *** on a black truck too

No darker than 15% front windows.
5-15% on the back, depending on if you want them to match or not.
I did 15% on the front of the F150, and 15% over factory rear tint, looks fine with the back darker. I did it on the sport trac, and would do it again.

I'm down with this.

I say 15% all around. It would look much better if it all matched.
