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.

cops around here are dicks about tint, i had 35%, almost got a ticket for it and took it off....(it ripped in one spot anyways...) and my taillights i jus did a lil while ago, i can see amazing cuse i only shaded the red parts and left the white reverse lights white...:idea:
by law no less than 75% is allowed in NY i believe....which is basically no tint at all lmao.

These laws may not be current and are often enforced differently by different PD's. In all cases, refer to you local authority for enforcement policies, current laws, rules or regulations. Your current state law is the final authority, not this website! The numbers represent the percentage of light transmitted through the tinted glass, so the lower the number, the darker the film allowed. Generally the films are sold as 5%(limo), 20%(dark), 35%(medium), 50%(light).
S.U.V.s often have different regulations, which are not listed here.
