I'm thinking about tinting my 2012 Mustang but wanted to get everyone's feed back on what a good percentage would be. Don't want it too dark but would 35% look decent on a race red color?

35% is where the tint starts to get dark. 35% is still good enough to look blackish and let you see outside at night backing up.

My Malibu had 15% on it, and it was a pain to see out of, I had to roll the windows down sometimes. Both my Grand Prix and Mustang are 35% and I'm pretty happy with it.

35% on a bright day...

I have 15% on race red. I personally like it keeps the car cooler in the summertime. And frankly, I don't like people being nosey. :) Backing up at night does not require me to roll the windows down, but I do it to be safe.

Check your local laws. Not worth the hassle of tickets to me for darker windows

If cops were strict around here there's no way I would have done 5% .. I love it and I have no complainants :) So if 35% is the legal limit and cops are strict in your area then go for it!

Unless the cops in your area are 100% duchebags go for 20%. That's what I have and its a great medium. If I was to do it over I would go 5% bc I have sensitive eyes.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! Sounds like I might go darker than 35%, maybe 20%, for looks and also to keep it somewhat cooler in the summertime. In response to Hmiller, I'm getting it done in TN where the max legal is 5%. However the thing about Ft. Campbell is we sit in both KY and TN. I don't know what the max legal in KY is so I don't wanna get screwed with by cops when I go over.

Are u 100% sure on that 5% law? I am almost certain that the law is 32% in most states.

Technically you can go as dark as you want on the back sides and rear. The front is what they care about. It's more for officer safety than yours.

Only in certain areas. Several states specify all windows.
