Question Window tint...

Just wondering if anyone around the Chicagoland area has their windows tinted.

If so has any police officers said anything about it?

i hope i dont jinx myself for saying this, but i havent had any trouble this far, then again, my vehicle doesnt really draw any attention from anyone, so that may be way as well.

I currently have the 2 fronts at 50%, which usually is what youll find to be the lightest tint you can get at the majority of tint shops.

Riggs Bros on warrenville road did mine.

Would you mind posting some pictures if possible of the windows so I can get an idea of what each level of tint looks like.

Thanks

Thanks for that picture. When I was looking at the first ones I was trying to figure out what it was you were talking about.
