Tint Question
What is the legal limit in Ontario for the fronts/rears as well as the rear windshield?

And this may sound retarded, but does the higher % mean darker or lighter?:confused:

The percentage is the amount of light allowed to pass.

15% is darker than 35% and also illigal.

I know a while back, the limits were 35% for windows behind the driver, the fronts could be 50%, and you couldnt tint the front windshield. I believe it has changed, but stayed within the same ballpark of numbers.

35% on the doors, 5% on the 3 backs and a 6" sun strip on windsheild any %...

I want a consistent tint all around. I'm thinking 30% all around would look great.

I just wanted to know how much I'd be breaking the law by ;)

On my e30 it is 20% on all 5 windows and a 8" sun strip it is 5% too...

what % are limo tints?

30% should look pretty black, and difficult to see in right?

35 front and 20 rears are legal.
but if i was to do it again, i will get 10/15% all around

paul christians 02-22-2006 02:41 AM

5% is limo tint.

just open a window if you ever get stopped

They cannot do shit to me....hehehehhe.....

i'm running 3% .. can't see shit all, even with the top down you still can't see into the car, but noone hassles me, plus i do most of my driving in michigan where they don't care

I am thinking of going 10% all around in my e28. a buddy of mine has 15% all around on his white Z71 and i think it would look a little nicer a bit darker, thats just me.
