Window Tint Question

Okay so I'm finally getting my windows tinted on Friday. I know I want 5% on the back doors and rear window. I'm just not sure what I want to do on the front, I think 5% may be too dark for me. I was thinking maybe 15% or 20%, but I just don't know.

So what would you guys suggest?

Also feel free to post any pictures!

Thanks!

I told them to match mine. It looks great. It's a little dark when backing up but you get use to it. Or roll the window down.

I have 5% over factory on the back doors and back window and 25% on the front two. It is a little bit of a pain at night especially with a trailer. Just add some bright backup lights.
