I have a new 08 cobalt coupe, imperial blue and I am thinking about putting on some tints but I am not sure what would be the best % so I was wondering what some of you put on your cobalt and how you like it

thank you!

it depends on how legal you want to be. tint laws can vary from city/state so the first step would be to find out what is legal, then decide from there.
you can either ask a police officer, or you should be able to find state/city specific code online.

You will be very concerned when you get a $250 ticket for tint...

My advise... stick with what is legal... unless you have family in the police dept.

I had 2.5% and loved it except at night because you couldn't see anything out the sides. I got pulled over for it and got a warning, so I took it off the next day

Well if you have a light interior/gray then I would go with 20%...it almost looks factory and it still looks good. That's what I have light interior and I have light tint. But if I had dark interior I would do the legal 35% cuz the darker the interior the darker the tint looks no matter what percent it is.

I had 2% on my pathfinder and I hated it!!! Couldnt see anything backin up or out the sides. I had 5% on my F-150 and loved it. You can see perfectly and it looks very nice. Just try to keep your windows cracked a good bit durring the day and you got a better chance of not getting cought.

In Jersey theres no limit on tint except you cant tint the front door windows or the windshield.

My wifes Mazda 3 has 20% outback and looks good on her medium grey car. I am getting the rear window of the Black Balt done in 5%.

Im planning on doing a 15% tint on mine the reason is that only about 1 in 25 cops have tint "readers" where im from. i know this because im studying to be an officer and the leutenant said everybody gets warnings unless you and the cops meet on multiple occasions. haha il take my chances.

My last balt had 20% on the windshield/front windows and 5% on all three back windows. I'll probably go with 15% all the way around this time since I have black interior plus the back was to damn dark at night with 5%.
