5% tint and tps sensors

Well im finally gona get my windows tinted now that its gettign warm and black leather gets HOT! I called a few places and got quotes anywhere from 160.00 to 250.00. I did alittle research about the tps sensors and window tint and some people say its fine and some people say it will mess with the TPS sensors. So do any of yall have 5% tint and the TPS sensors and do I need the " better tint" and post pics of your tint if ya got them. I pretty sure that I want to go with 5% all the way around but I might wana go alittle lighter in the front. Ive got 5% on my other 08 but its hard as crap to see out of at night and i dont want this one to be that bad to see out of but i dont want anyone to be able to see in.

TPS sensor? Im new, tomorrow is my first day! Lol i run 15 in the front and 5 in the rear and i think its a pretty good combo. I know you tow at night so you might want to rethink the 5 up front for that reason. Other than that i would like to have 5 all the way around. Im suprised you've waited on tint this long lol. I paid 195 for all five windows.

by TPS, are you referring to the Tire Pressure Sensors? Just curious what sensor you are saying is effected by tint?

Here's a pick of mine. 20% tint up front, matches the back factory tint really well... I like it, dark enough but not to dark.

5% over factory on the rear windows, 5% on the front windows, 35% on the windshield. I dont see how it could affect the TPS sensors...

I paid 300 for mine with the windshield.

Yes, very similar....I got some goodies on the way this week though so we wont be twins anymore

Yes, windshield tint is illegal, but so is 5% on the sides.

The only tint I could see messing up the tps would be the tint that has metal film in it.
