How to Choose the Right Window Tint Percentage

One of the biggest considerations a car owner needs to take into account when tinting their windows is the tint percentage. The experts at Atomic Wraps in Northwest Indiana can help you decide when making this decision but there are a number of things to think about when making this decision.

Some of the most common window tint percentages are 50%, 35%, 20% and 5%. The lower the tint percentage the darker the tint will be.

50% window tint is a great option if you’re looking to block half of the UV rays that get into your vehicle. This percentage won’t appear largely different, it will mostly just block out UV rays and stop the heat.

35% window tint is a bit darker than 50% window tint and will make your vehicle appear more modern and sleek. If you’re looking to tint your window for visual appearances than this is a more popular percentage.

20% window tint is darker yet. A 20% window tint is great for privacy. Someone trying to look into your car would need to get really close to the window before they could make out anything.

5% window tint is the darkest tint you can have legally in most cases. 5% window tint is typically used on limousines to ensure privacy.

When choosing a tint percentage you’ll want to make sure whatever you choose is in accordance with local laws otherwise you could risk getting ticketed.
