Hey Colorado Crew v. Window Tint

I just bought my focus, and the windows are tinted dark as hell. I don't feel like getting a ticket, so do you know any good tint shops? I live in Aurora (80012)

Illegal window tint is rarely enforced in CO. Only cop's that are real pricks enforce it. My tint isn't "legal", and I've never been pulled over in CO for it. David has limo tint, (5%), and he's never been popped for it either.

I also have a friend that has had 15% tint on his cars for 20 years, and he's never been pulled over for it.

If you were wondering, the CO tint law is:

If the front side windows are tinted, the tint can't be darker than 27%.

If the front side windows aren't tinted, the back and rear windows can be as dark as you like.

The windshield is allowed to have a four inch strip at the top.

Good to know, my tint "looks" like its 20%, I have never had darker than 35.

Hell, cops don't even do a double-take at 20% in CO. Now Iowa, that's another story.....

Even if your tint is legal in the state you are from, if it doesn't match the legal limits in Iowa, they will still give you a ticket.
