5% window tint ???

Should I go with 5% all around or stick with 15 or 10%? How dark is it at night inside the cab? I am not going to tint the windshield but there is a tint strip on it now and that will stay on there after i redo my tint.

Like I said its a PITA to tow with anything darker than 20% on the side windows. Just MO though cause I like to be able to see everything when I turn and back up.

I left the back windows alone and did a match on the front windows so they all looked the same.

As mentioned, going that dark is worthless at night.

Ive limo tinted several of my cars and its a little difficult to see at night out the sides, and it can give you tunnel vision at night too. I love it in the day though. Kinda vehicle specific depending on the interior color and cab size and if you want to deal with it. I did 15% all around my current truck(zero tint from factory) and wifes escalade (15 front and 35 rear over factory tint.) Her last vehicle, a Trailblazer SS, had limo all around includeing over rear factory tint and had a black interior....it was real dark. Her escalade is a parchment interior and reflects a lot of inside light, so it feels lighter than my ford with a dark grey interior and the same tint.

All that being said, I strongly recommend 15% all around on the CC SD's. And its the tint I will likely keep doing on all my vehicles. Almost dark enough you cannot see in from most angles, and is easy to see other cars at night.

Llumar is the best brand.

The visor is up to you.

I wouldnt say that much. The ONLY problem I have with my window tint is when I am backing up at night.
