I don't think you will find any tint that is a perfect match to the factory tint on the rear windows. I did a lot of looking and it's either a shade darker or a shade lighter. Good luck!

I'm wanting to tint my front when i get it This time also!

I read on another tint Thread,that some favored the 45%,and I THINK ? they said the limit in their state, Can't recall the state,was 35% if i remember right.

I can't stand the Bright Sun light,it makes my eyes water real bad!

I carry Extra sunglasses Just incase i break or loose the ones i'm wearing....

And i Did break one pair a few years Back :~) trying to Gaff a Cobia LOL

my back were limo timted at 5%. I tinted my fronts 20 and they dont match perfectly, but it looks good. my state, NC, allows only to 35%. if you use the autozone 35% tint, walmart tints(which are pretty good imo) then you will be over the 35% on the windows, because the windows themselves have a 3-4% tint on them from factory. so you have to use like a 40% tint. I have never had trouble with tint laws in my area. mainly cause Im not a drug dealer or a thug I guess...LOL

I play my music louder than most in town, but not insanely loud.
I had a 550hp 87 fox body that everyone knew me in town in. I had 5% tint all the way around on it and never had trouble. just some info for ya.
