If you have decided to have your car’s windows professionally tinted, you may be wondering just how dark window tint you should have tinted. Solar Solutions is here to help make your decision easier by giving you some guidance!

Is There Such a Thing as Too Dark Window Tint?

This is an excellent question. You do not want to spend the money on tinting your windows only to get pulled over by a State Trooper because your tint is too dark. Each state has its own laws regarding dark window tint. What does the Sunshine State have to say about window tint? According to www.tinting-laws.com, the laws for sedans differ slightly from that of SUVs and vans. An exception to this law is that sedans, SUVs, and vans all have the same requirement for front side windows (driver and passenger). These windows must allow more than 28% of the light in the window.

The backside windows (backseat) of sedans must allow more than 15% of light in the window, while SUVs and vans are only required to allow more than 6% of light through these windows. The rear windows of sedans, as well as SUVs and vans, have the same guidelines as the back seat windows.

Windshields cannot be tinted on any vehicle in forty-eight of the fifty states, according to info.glass.com. This is for the safety of all drivers as it is dangerous to have your view of the road impeded in any way.

What if I Don’t Like the Way Tint Looks?

Perhaps you want the benefits that tinting has to offer, such as protecting your vehicle’s interior from sun damage and helping to regulate the temperature inside your car, but you do not like the look of dark window tint. You may be thinking that you are out of luck, but that is not the case! Solar Solutions actually offers a clear tint! Yes, those two words together seem like an oxymoron, like jumbo shrimp!
