All black tinted

Got my ride blacked out today. My buddy Brad owns a tint shop, Shift Innovations. If you're in New Jersey, this guy does amazing work with the best quality tint. Car looks awesome. Got those Louvers turned around too afterwards.

Lol i hear ya, its a $90 ticket in VA for anything darker than 50%! I would have gone darker myself but I do quite a bit of night driving because of my job, and was worried about visibility

Since we are on the topic, anyone know what the ticket cost is for Ohio for too darkly tinted windows? Thinking I might do 35% shortly which I know is below our legal limit.

Personally man, i dont think 35% is noticeable enough. Especially during the day. If you're going to be below the legal limit anyway, why not do 20%?

Ehhh was thinking because of driving at night. 20% is pretty dark. Honestly don't think the cops would care around here. I blew past one driving on the road doing 80 in a 65 and he didn't even look twice.

I might just go darker. I'd like to see a car in person with 20% tint to see what visibility is like.

I am guessing a tint shop can probably show me the difference. There are a few big shops around here that do tints on lambos and Ferraris and such. Might see what they say about it.

That was my main concern to as i do a lot of night driving, and was the only thing preventing me from doing 5% lol. Honestly the 20% is not hard to see out of at all at night. Obviously darker than stock, but very manageable. To be honest i didnt expect the visibility to be as good as it is.

Thanks for the info! I might just do 20% then. I don't mind paying a ticket the few rare times I might have too.

Can another state ticket you for windows tinted too dark? Or do they have to ignore you since you don't reside in their state.

No problem, my thought process was that i would have hated to pay for 35% just to realize that i want to go darker lol. Glad i did it right the first time haha.
As for state to state monitoring, that is a good question, and one that I have often wondered myself, since i live 15 min from the virginia/Maryland border where tint laws are much more lenient.

I drive through 3 states to get to work haha. I drove from Ohio through a few mins of Indiana down into Kentucky. I am pretty sure if I remember right Kentucky is more lenient than Ohio. I have no idea on Indiana.

Just curious. I was talking with a friend of mine the other day and she was wondering the same. She lives in Ohio and drives into Kentucky for the same job. Wondered if driving into a different state gets you in trouble since you don't live there. Seems silly they would do that too me. Since they don't do it with license plates and what not.

It would be stupid for them to ticket u with out of state plates, put I wouldn't put it past them... I have 35% and wouldn't go any darker, I like my visual mods to be subtle... This is the 3rd day after I got my car new, looks dark here for some reason

see that doesn't make sense too me. That means that everyone and their brother that drives from Kentucky into Ohio will get tickets since having a front license plate in Kentucky is not required by law, but it is in Ohio.


I understand when it comes to obeying traffic laws that are different in other states because you can change how you drive, I can't just magically pull tint off my car when I enter another state. Same as the license plates, can't just magically make one appear on the front and disappear from the front when I go through different states.

Which then brings the question, can a cop in a different state ticket you for not following a law in your state. Say I did get a 20% tint and go into KY, could they ticket me for having an illegal tint in Ohio while driving in Kentucky?

Seems like a messy situation. I really am not terribly worried, Kentucky cops where I work are so laid back it isn't funny. 7 months of working my current job down there driving there highways all the time, never ever seen a cop sitting on the side running radar ever. They also watch people drive their 65MPH highways at 80 and don't care. Not sure what is different down there, but I love KY cops. Driving in Ohio is a different story haha.

I might do 20% then if nighttime visibility isn't impacted. That was really my main concern.

if it doesn't look that dark normally I might want to go darker. I really want it for two main reasons and the third is a benefit. Sick of people who just pull up next too me and just stare at me. I look young (24 but really look 16 or so everyone has to go out of there way to tell me) and so I am sure it makes people mad seeing me in the car, or extremely jealous and I want the privacy factor. Second is to help keep the heat out of the car. I'll gladly take the fact that it looks good on the car too!

EDIT: I should say I don't mind people checking out the car, telling me how awesome she sounds, etc. I just hate the people who have that snarled look who just glare at me.

U should be good with 20% then, its darker but I had it on my last car and nighttime visibility isn't bad at all... 35% on the other looks as clear as no tint at night which is pretty cool too with a fair shade of darkness in daylight... Here in Jersey, u could have 50% and if the cop wants to be a dbag he will find any reason to screw u over if he's bored enough... I still have my tints and no front plate and only got a ticket ($54) once

I see your point on the front plate. Daytona bike week they were giving out tickets for MC plates being vertically mounted at $1200 a pop, even tho It's legal in many states. Same as some states having a f****up helmet law and others don't.

yeah it just doesn't make sense too me. If you live in a state that has certain laws of that nature, when visiting another state they should grant you a pardon for that. Thankfully where I live the cops are really not that way, but I know there are states that would be. Some states are absolute Nazi and even if I wanted to take my stang, would make me want a rental car just so they can't ticket me for every little thing different in their state from mine.

I have 20% on the sides and 5% on the back windows and its not that bad. I had to switch to the raxiom led reverse lights, but I just roll the window down real quick when I'm backing in. Fwiw, Texas law says your windows have to be less than 35% so mine are beyond illegal but that's only the front two windows. The rest can be black plexi for all they care. I sincerely doubt a cop would ticket a out of state car for something as stupid as window tint. Especially considering most cops don't know their own local rules and would have no clue about yours. This is an older picture but this is what the tint looks like with the sun shining right down on the car.

In Texas we do. Have to keep in mind too that factory cars usually come with UV protection which is good for a 5% reduction in visibility. So I have 35% on my car and it measured at around 30%. City cops don't mind much but you may have to watch out for state troopers. In Texas it is a fix it ticket. Tear tint off and pay the court cost and they clear the ticket. It shouldn't be a moving violation so points wouldn't be taken from for license if you kept getting tickets. In Texas they will not issue an inspection sticker if the tint is too dark. I have gotten away with rolling the windows down and pulling the window motor fuse before. I have been failed before for the windows not working as well because they could not officially measure the tint.

I have 25% tint and I don't think it's very easy to see when it's pitch black out.

In Texas all you have to do is know someone who is a technician at a dealership and have them write you up for an "under the table" inspection. Or you could go to any of the local "auto repair/taco joints" and they'll do it for you for often 20-25 bucks.

Yikes man! that is a heafty fine for the shop (excess of $25K) and the person that did it will loose thier job. The inspection stickers record what station provided your sticker and well as the technicin and if they do not, you will be ticketed for not having a valid inspection.

I forgot to mention. In Texas the legal tint in 20%. So, no worries here, I am all legal. spent to much time going round a round back in the day...

Which part? Getting denied or pulling the fuse? There is a sucker born every day and some of them work at auto repair facilities.

You do not have to have side windows to pass inspection but if they cannot test the tint and they think that it is tinted, you may have to get the window "Fixed" before they will pass you.
