Local tint shop should be able to point you in the right direction.

Colorado has tint laws but I rarely see them enforced and a little advice that might help is in the event you get pulled over make sure you roll down both windows on the side the officer is approaching and have your pertinents in hand and I doubt he'd even notice. It's when he can't see into your car is when you make them nervous.

I have 20% all around with 15% on the back window and sunroof. I did the rediculously dark tint in the past and it's great in the day but seeing out at night is a trick. I also don't care for the look of dark tint on the rear and stock tint on the fronts, the uneveness doesn't work.
I bet most of you could get away with 20% regardless of the law.
