by law in ohio 50% on sides is all you can have , im thinking of doing 20% all around, what do you think are the odds i may be pulled over?

yo this may be a little old but hope it helps. http://www.tintdude.com/laws.html

and normally its 6 inches down from the top of the windshield in most states, yeah the best thing would to just leave the windshield alone, im gonna put 15-25% all around. most states legally are around 35%

Vdizz- Whats going to happen if you get pulled over for not turning on your turn signal. and then the cop is like O looky here, 35% tint. Well you just got another ticket.

oh cool thx for that link. ugh i think its stupid. cops r chickens lolol thats the only reason theres a law for it now really other then them blaming accidents on blackd out windows in bad weather. now if i could tint the full windshield id be fine with 35% though id like darker but i aint gonna just tent the sides and rear and leave the windshield untented / 5'' saying with a black dash full tint would help. but o well eaither do it were asshole cop will pull me over constently or not at all grr face lol
