Different in each state, check with your local motor vehicle branch. Or a tint place will know.

Welcome! Is that NYC? Because cops are only a pain with tints when bored but I wouldn't risk it

I have some super dark tint on mine, I have it on the front and rear doors, also on the rear window.

If your worried about getting stopped, I would get a nice dark one on the rear door windows, slightly lighter on the front door windows, and get none on the rear window at all.

Sometimes cops will be at the end of there quota and stop you if you have rear window tint, not talking about rear doors, rear window, although this is perfectly legal in most states, in all states its illegal to tint your front windshield, so if your back one is tinted, they will stop you because they "have to check" you have not got your windshield tinted, hoping to find you have no insurance, no license, DUI or doing something illegal. I have mine tinted, I do nothing illegal, so I don't care, but if your worried, most tinting laws apply to the front of your car, but rear window tinting will give the law a reason to stop you.

I went 35% and regret it. Cant see worth a damn in reverse at night in poorly lit areas. Which there are probably more of here than NY. Of coarse tinted reverse lights dont help either. Lol
Welcome to the forum btw.

^I'm happy I kept getting pulled over for my taillights. I can actually see what I am going to run into at night backwards now!
