Just a small suggestion. If your asking for advice, it would really be nice if you posted WHERE YOU LIVE? It does make it easier to steer you somewhere.

Six7One has a suggestion.

In Illinois 35% or lighter is the legal tint percentage on all windows. I went 35% on the fronts and the sides and then I went 20% on the back. At first I thought the difference was going to look weird, but it really turned out stellar.

I got the 30 percent huper optik ceramic tint. Since it is ceramic tint it is very expensive, but block a lot of UV rays and quite a bit of heat. I think its 60 percent or so heat rejection. Really amazing stuff. I gave 380 for it and only certain tint shops will do it.

I got 15% all the way around. It's dark but not super dark. Definitely make sure to see what's legal first though.

I went with 35% up front. 5% on quarter windows. I messed up the back window and one roll wasnt even enough to do it, so i went with 2.5% on the back. It was the only tint i could find in a long enough roll lol.
