Who makes best quality window tint? Im not looking for anything wild, just a smoke tint. I dont want to have to replace it anytime soon. Or are they pretty much all the same?

my .02 is take it to a pro tint shop. it will be more expensive but worth it. the stuff most of em use is alot better than the stuff you find at wally world.
plus Luv_v8 they can put your tint to the legal max but they wont go more (bad for the shops reputation)
ive tinted a few window w/ mixed results and id rather pay the extra $$$ and get it done right.

Yep, go pro! I tinted my own with stuff from an auto parts store and it is scratched up pretty bad! I had all my other vehicles professionally done and the tint on my S10 still looks brand new! As for the darkness of tint, if you can find a shop that will work with ya, they can go darker, you just have to swear you wont tell authorities where you got it done and the shop won't give you a reciept. A guy that use to deliver to my work had a son that owned a shop, which is why I have 20% on my SS! The only bad thing is I have to roll my windows down when backing up at night too!

around here if they catch you w/ illeagle tint, ohio is 50% (i think :? ), what the cop does is give you a warning and then places a nice big ol gash in your driver side window film.
that away if you get pulled over for it again your screwed :(

I use a lumaar brand because it doesn't turn purple like the other tints at the auto parts stores.
DO NOT ever put tint on your vehicle from auto parts stores....they all will turn purple.
if you want some good stuff I can get some from a place in ringgold for $2 a foot. 32% is legal here in Tennessee, but I have 25% on mine.

I agree with the other guys....if you haven't done it just get it done.
I have tinted stuff since I was 16. My mom used to work at choochoo customs and several other vehicle custom shops and she used to tint windows and pinstripe vehicles. She is who taught me.

don't ever use any cleaner like windex or anything that has amonia in it to clean your windows with tint. that will turn it purple as fast as you can say....oops!
