If you don’t know much about vehicle tints for car windows, you might be surprised to know how many types of window films exist. In fact, there are some window tints that block out so much light that they’re illegal in some states!
Most window tints are described in terms of percentages. The lower the percentage, the less natural light the tint will allow inside the vehicle. For instance, a 5% vehicle tint isn’t allowed in the state of Florida because it blocks out nearly all sunlight. Most drivers opt for vehicle tints between 20% and 50% in order to reduce UV exposure and glare from the sun without sacrificing their ability to see clearly.
Depending on your unique preferences for your car, you might need a customized vehicle tint. For example, getting a 70% window tint won’t darken your window very noticeably, but you’ll still reap the benefits of a cooler interior and less UV radiation exposure. If you prefer greater personal privacy while driving, a lower percentage could be the right option for you.
You can even select from different strengths of window tints for the different windows of your vehicle as long as you stay within the guidelines set by the state of Florida. Here are the general rules you need to know:
- For sedans, back side windows and rear windows need to be at or above a 15% tint. Front side windows have to be at or above a 28% tint.
- For vans and SUVs, back side windows and rear windows must let in at least 6% of light. Front side windows have to be at or above a 28% tint.
