tint window question

Would it look nice if I tint the windows 5% for the 3 rear windows and 70% for the 2 lateral front windows............(70% is the law here in Montreal)

thanks

70% isn't even really worth doing. I had to look up the law, because I didn't believe it was that little, but it is.

Here is a pic I found of 70%:

actually its really not that bad!
at night you can see other cars headlights and of course im getting a backup camera to remedy the situation also

for the front i have 35% but im probably going to change it to a darker tint
either 20%, 15% or if i really feel like it 5%

gets too hot, plus im getting my indash installed, i would prefer that no one can see inside the car

idk what your tickets are? I know in Florida they are 100.00. I get them every now and then.

I have 15% all around and 20% on my whole front windsheild. Its very nice looking. Cops only stop me every now and then, Had 3 tickets in 2 years ive had it on. Its not a fix it ticket, just a non-moving violation. Just pay the 100.00 bucks and carrie on your day

well in so cal [at least in my area] they dont really care for tint

as long as you dont drive like a jackass and dont have anything else wrong with your car then they have no reason to pull you over.

but i make it a habit to roll my windows down if i see a cop

and in the event that i do get pulled over, i always have my windows down, as usual

Tinting the front window is crazy, but yeah yeah, it looks good.
