I got 48% on the fronts (thanks to Utah's ridiculous 43% law) and 5% on the back windows.

Yeah, I live in Utah as well and had mine tinted with Formula One Pinnacle. I wanted to go with 40 for the fronts but they wouldn't go with it so I went with 50 for the fronts and 35 elsewhere. I didn't want to go so different on the back that it was such a big difference from the fronts.

Just remember that even without after market tint there is some tint in the windows from the factory so a 50, which is actually a 54, winds up being something like 48 when the factory tint is taken into account.
