Window Tint Percentage Options: Choosing the Right Shade for Your Vehicle
Looking to tint your vehicle? Be sure you know what is legal before you get a ticket and have to get your tent removed because it’s not within Oregon’s legal limit.
When it comes to window tinting, there are a variety of percentage options to choose from. The percentage refers to the amount of light that is allowed to pass through the tinted windows. Here’s a breakdown of the different options and what you need to know before deciding which one is right for you.
5% – This is the darkest option available and only allows 5% of light to pass through the window. While this may be appealing to some for privacy reasons or to reduce glare, it is important to note that this level of tint is illegal in Oregon for the front windows and windshield of vehicles.
20% – This option allows 20% of light to pass through the window and is a popular choice for those who want some privacy and glare reduction, but still want to be able to see out of their windows clearly.
35% – This option allows 35% of light to pass through the window and is a good balance between privacy and visibility. It is also legal in Oregon for the front windows and windshield of vehicles.
70% – This option allows 70% of light to pass through the window and is the lightest option available. It is a good choice for those who want some protection from the sun without significantly impacting visibility.
It is important to note that while the 5% option is illegal for the front windows and windshield in Oregon, individuals with a medical condition that requires special protection from the sun may be eligible for an exemption. A prescription from a doctor for a skin condition, for example, may allow you to tint your windows as dark as you want.
Before deciding on a window tint percentage, be sure to check the laws in your state and consider any special circumstances that may apply to you. With the right tint, you can enjoy a cooler, more comfortable ride while also protecting your skin and reducing glare
