Is 50% tint worth it?

Is 50% tint worth tinting your windows at all?


Here is the Ohio law:
On Ohio registered vehicles, window tint must allow 50 percent light transmittance on the rear and side windows, and 70 percent transmittance on the windshield. In other words, the tint can not be darker than 50 percent on the side and back, and 30 percent on the windshield.


So 50% is as dark as I can go. I am just wondering if it is dark enough. Most on here seem to like 30-35%. Anyone have any pix w/ something close to 50%?

You won't get the "cool" look to your car with tint that light, but your car will stay cooler and it'll still protect your interior more then not getting the windows tinted.

wow thanx for that. holy crap 50% is nothing. wow.


as for 20%....i think that might be just a little too dark. i wonder if i can get away with 35%. i wonder if any place in ohio will actually tint to 35% since the law states it is 50%. does anyone know what the cost of a ticket is for a tint violation?

Re: Is 50% tint worth it?

remember no matter what the tint is gonna lighten so 20 percent isnt gonna look that dark for long. Or you could do 35 sides 20 in the back

yea that was the other thing i was wondering about. the back hatch window and lil quarter windows already have factory tint on them. if i go to a tint place and say "i want 35% all around" will they just lay 35% over the factory tint thus giving me something like 15%?

Re: Is 50% tint worth it?

well when i had my car done it was 35 all sides and 20 percent in the rear , stock tint is none existant. Its gonna def look dark at first but promise me ,whatver they say tint will always get lighter through time. Mine even came with a warranty. That to me was the best setup and i never got pulled over by police. And in NYC they'll pull you over being dark with a dark car on a friday . So, id say it passed the test.

Re: Is 50% tint worth it?

yahh its the pic like i said my back window is the only thing thats really dark and unless you have weird ass vision your never gonna be able to tell that the sides are only 35 oh well but like i said before just do it and dont be an aggresive driver and you wont have a problem...at least in my town the only people that get window tint tickets are ones that had something else that caused them to be pulled over such as loud exhaust or just plain driving like a penis

Re: Is 50% tint worth it?

Well I live in Mentor and 2 of my friends have or I should say had 35 percent tint. Well it turns out that cops have a tool to take the tint off so after 1 ticket the cops just take it off for you if they catch you again.
