50% window tint pics

Hey everyone I'm getting my windows tinted this week and Ohio law is 50% on front doors and anything on back. I looked but can't find any good picks of cars with 50% tint. was wondering if anyone on here who has 50% on the front doors could post a pic. Zeibart has 55% but said it looks darker on car then sample because the factory windows have a slight tint to them. Was going to maybe do 35% on back. Thanks guys.

I'd like to see pictures of 50% as well - my gut instinct is that it might not be worth it.

I was thinking about 50 in front and 30-35 in the back. Also because of Ohio laws, and they're pretty damn strict about them too.

50% isn't really worth it in my opinion. Doesn't do much. I just got 35% all around and its not super dark. You could barely tell the difference in the day time if it was 50%. Usually cops won't pull you over for it but if you get pulled over for speeding they'll tack a tint ticket on to it as well.

Cops around me pull people over for window tint all the time and will actually measure the tint.

Well not around here. But that really bugs me. Like isn't there something more productive to do for a police officer like actually catching criminals instead of having out tinting tickets.

Doesn't really bug me too much. The law is the law. Besides, a lot of those stops turn into bigger things and will get drugs, guns, and criminals off the street.

Example, a business of my families was robbed and thousands of dollars stolen. The criminals were caught in a different county 4 months later because of a stupid traffic stop. Didn't get the money back, but the guys got what's coming to them.

Thanks for the pics, see that looks darker on the car then a sample of tinted window I've seen online from eBay or the sample at the store. Sample at store is on plexi glass so they said it would look darker then sample. I might take sample outside and hood it against window.

Here's a pic of the tint samples at Zeibart. They said the 55 will look closer to the 35 on the car because the factory glass has a slight tint to it which it actually looks like it does.
