Tinting Windows

I will be getting tint on my windows within the next week. I am looking for a tint that isnt to dark, but enough to be able to stop easy looking in. The main reason i wanna do this is cause i got lasick done about 9 months ago, and a side effect is seeing halo's at night with lights shine in your eyes.

In jersey it is illegal to tint the front windows, but if i tint them light i think i will be fine. Im assuming around 25% all around?

Did anyone find a good happy medium so they can still see out the back window and be able to see clearly at night?

do you think that 35% will still add a good amount of privacy?

Front windows meaning the driver and passenger side window? How come you are getting blinded by those? I had eye work done as well and I thought you were talking about the front window/windshield as that's where the light hits your eyes at....
Here in WA state you can only tint the top of the windSHIELD for a certain amount of inches.

Sorry about the confusion. I was referring to the driver and passenger side windows. Im not really getting blinded but i am getting Halo's, which is a known side effect from that. Its not really as much as the cars coming at me, but more the cars behind me with the lights shining in my mirrors.

What kind of work did you get done? ( I hated it, but love that i don't have to ever wear contacts again)

30-35%... These are pics of 35%, looks a lot darker though so of no use I guess





Imo 30% would be perfect.

thats just a bad angle of the tint and the weather seems over cast or looks as if the pic was taken during dusk cause 35% is pretty light and you can see an object on the other side of the windows when there up with that tint. just to give you an idea
