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

I just think that anything above 35% would be way too lite period. Im not worried about the rear window. I am pretty set at that being 5%. And I think I moght just go with 20% on the fronts.

As far as color.. I was thinking this color red since my car is black and red themed...

Mine is 35% all around. Legal limit in Tennessee. The last thing I wanted to do was pay near $200 just to have to rip it back off if caught.
