that's an odd problem. The tint isn't on the outside of the glass is it? lol

cheap tint maybe? when you rub it, getting in/out or the like its scratching?

kids?

angry ghosts? j/k

do you use windex to clean them?

you are supposed to use a tint cleaner of some form. esp if its aftermarket. Could be the problem.

how long ago did you have it installed?

stickx911 may be on the right track with what you are using to clean it with.

unless something is touching the inside of the glass there is no way the tint can be getting "scratched"

is it possible that maybe it is cracking?

if you had it done by a good shop the tint should have a lifetime warranty. take the car in and have them look at it and replaced if it comes down to it.

its not when i clean it because its just in spots, it does have a life time warranty i think, i got it installed last summer so if it starts to bother me more i might have them see whats wrong. i think something is scratching it when i put the windows down and up

that would make the most sense now that Phil mentioned it. are the scratches going verticle? (up and down) then i would say it's from rolling the window up and down
