GTA - Window Tint

What percentages to others use in the GTA? I know its supposed to be 35% on the front windows, but is there a legal limit on the rear window? I would like to go a bit less than 35% on the front but will I get ticketed by the cops....although I know the ticket can be fought. I'd like to get the same % on the front and back but don't know if I will be a magnet for the cops.

Also, do other tint their windshield? What % works well?

If anyone can post pics of their tints and %'s that would be much appreciated.

Rear window can be limo/privacy tint. Front windows is 35%, rear roll down windows 25%. if the windows don't roll down, or pop out like the coupes in the back they can be privacy but look weird if that done.

You can go 25% all around and it wont be noticed as much, cause if you keep it all the same tint, than it looks good, and the cops going to see it all the same tint n may not think too much about it. you can push 20% but thats pushing it. i'm going 25% all around when i get mine retinted.
