Tinting Percentage...?

I am getting my windows tinted on Monday. I was just wondering what percentage or shade/color you guys think would be best.. Its a black sedan...
I was thinking about 5% rear window and 15% doors...

depends on what your laws are and if you wanna get hassled with tickets or not. I did 35% all around on my balt. it's still illegal in my state but I can get away with it pretty easy.

Not really worried about the local law. Jut wondering what would be the best for cooling down the car and the blocking jackass drivers with their high beams on blinding me lol
Do you think dark red tint would look good?

Do not get the colored tint, does not look good on any car. You need to stick to your states laws, even if your local agencies do not enforce, you do not want to get hassled on any trips.

Tinting % laws by state...

State Window Tinting Laws

The limit in your state (PA) is 70%, but that is WAY higher than many other states.

35% seems to be pretty common, so I would go with that if you don't want the 5-0 to hassle you elsewhere.

That's probably because the legal limit in MN is 50%... lol.

Although it can't be more than 20% reflective.

that was exactly my point. I get away with 35% because 50% isn't that much lighter
