All depends on what state your in(not state of mind). In Mass they get away with heavy tint while in Maine you'll get ticketed by the troopers quick, at their discretion it seems.CA seems to allow dark tints also, check with you state laws.

The general rule is no tint on the front side windows and windshield (you can have a header on top, but not the entire windshield).

Expect to get pulled over, usually the first ticket is a fix-it. The second is a hefty fine and fix it.
Unless you want to meet your local Officers and become friends on a first name basis. Don't do it.

If you do... expect the first ticket from CHP. :(
