I had 20% and was pulled over for it. I now have 32% and a 5% visor. The visor looks awesome but at night it kinda sucks. If you get a visor get 20%

In michigan there is a no tint law. You can have zero tint on you front windows, yet see tint all the time. Most cops will not pull you over and bust you for tint. Even if you do get a tint ticket it is just a show me.

Didn't we talk about the officers cracking down on this crap last year at that huuuugggge meet we had??

By the way, I think this just needs to get signed and its the new law.

wow you are so miss informed.

MSP - Traffic Laws FAQs


Quote:
The law that covers window applications is MCL 257.709 . The use of tinting is limited to the rear side windows, the rear window if the vehicle has outside mirrors on both sides, and the top 4 inches of the front side windows. There is a limited exception for medical necessity with a doctor's prescription, which allows for tinting to be applied to the front side windows as well. Michigan does not have a specification for the darkness of the window application, but does prohibit applications with a solar reflectivity greater than 35%.


Drive threw like redford or livonia or ferndale. those cities you are likely to get popped i have been pulled over for it but the benefits of working in an ER most the cops know you...

I've got limo tint on the very back window and 15% on my side windows. Wish I would've did limo all the way around but unless it's a really sunny day you can't see in my truck at all as it is now. I have to roll my window down and look out my mirrors in order to back up at night cause i can't see anything out my back window. These are the only pics I can find of my truck and they were taken 3 years ago when it was about a week old. I got my windows tinted the day after I bought it lol.

So, apparently, Bill 3325 for Illinois Passed yesterday so Illinois'ers don't have to worry about being pulled over anymore. Who knows when it'll be enacted though..

Illinois General Assembly - Bill Status for HB3325

Quote:
Up to 35% in the Rear/up to 35% front 35-30% in the rear/up to 50% front IF YOU HAVE BELOW 30% TINT IN THE REAR, YOU CAN NOT HAVE FRONT TINT If you have an MPV, which include but are not limited to, SUVs, Station Wagons, minivans, Toasters, etc., and said MPV has factory installed privacy glass (smoked), you are allowed to have up to 50% tint in front.

Yeah at night I don't even notice much of a difference, I was surprised.

Sides are 15, rear is 5, sunstrip 5, windshield 35. When I get money I'm gonna redo my sides to 5.

35 on the windshield? Lol I would get pulled over as soon as driving off the lot here if I did that. 35 is what I have on my side windows and I'm just fine with that. And 5 on the back.



Eventually want to get new side glass and a new windshield and do 20 sides 70 windshield

Well I guess I need to get 20% all around, it looks sweet. Right now I have stock in the back and 35% on the sides.

Definitely need to go darker

Yeah well California sucks. I like (visiting) northern California, but living there would suck with all the laws, politics and illegals.

(I would still rather live there than Kentucky, but I would rather live almost anywhere else than here lol)
