I’m thinking of tinting my rear windshield but before I do that I’d like to get some information about it. Thanks!
Hi Aimee. First thing that you need to consider when tinting your rear windshield is the laws and regulations. Most states do not allow tint on the vehicles’ front window and windshield. But the good thing is that majority of the state do allow tinting rear window, although there are still some restrictions that apply.
For one, when tinting your rear window, most states will not permit reflective tint, a type of tint is similar to those two-way mirrors. In addition, there is also restriction on how dark your tint will be. These laws differ from state to another so you better check laws applicable to tinting in your home. In addition, it would be best to check tinting laws in states near to your residence as well, just in case you drive and visit those places.
Moreover, when you travel in other states, you should always remember that your tint must meet the tinting laws in the state you are visiting. To make sure you will be in compliance with other state’s tinting laws, I would recommend that you choose a rear windshield tint that has a 35% or more visible-light transmission (VLT). This VLT measure the amount of light that can pass through your window’s tint.
