Unless you're a drug dealer, in the mafia or regularly having coitus in your backseat (>once a week ) 35% VLT should work well for you.thanks for the advice all. I am leaning toward 35% just because it's my first tint, and it will technically be legal.
Visible Light Transmission (VLT) is the amount of light that is allowed through the tint. It's unclear if this is outside -> inside, inside->outside or both.
The laws exist for 2 reasons.
1) Safety of LEO's to see inside vehicle. This is why metallic/mirrored tint (think ray-ban aviator chromed girl/guy watcher sunglasses) is illegal in most U.S. states.
2) Ensure drivers visibility out of vehicle is not affected (particularly at night). On rare occasions I've forgotten my glasses and driven with sunglasses at night. I cannot see much out of my 35% VLT tinted side+rear windows.
