State troopers in Fl are the worst about dark tint. They will literally turn around on the highway to write a ticket. Unreal.

70% is the stock tint on all modern cars. It's only there to reduce sun glare and it doesn't even look like tint, if you look at the window from an angle it's that bluish color you see. So NO tint beyond factory is legal in PA.

Hey guys, found this site which tells you restricted colors, if you can have reflective and what kind of certification is needed if necessary. Maybe it could be added to the top post for everyone:

There is a service that will dip your windows in a solution, which would be considered Legit as it's not a film that can come off. Tint is only illegal if it can come off, well in Canada anyway

I believe mine is all 20% which is darker than KY law allows but ah well, 35% doesn't do crap.

if you want to add PR for us PR members the law is, 35% drivers windows and front windshield and back windows as low as you want...

so it will be state front 35% sides 35% and back ANY

I just got my first ticket last week here in Illinois (which is no tint at all on front). I have 20% on back, 35% on front. Cop said it looks too dark, not so much to me. Anyway I got a $75 ticket if I don't decide to remove it, which I won't (maybe till next ticket).
