Smile moving to cali...need to remove tint?

im asking for help with people who live in cali...southern cali if possible. i live in tucson,az where it is hot as hell in the summer. i have 5 percent tint in back and 20 in front. legal in front here is 35..never had problems though. i hear in cali no tint is legal in front? i was there last month and saw cars with some tint nothing too dark. a few cars were dark like mine but my question is. if you live in cali and have tint can you put how dark it is and if the fuzz has givin you any problems? i really dont wanna strip it so help me out please!

According to this site you can have 70% in the front and anything in the back. So 20 is definitely illegal.

Now it depends of course on the cops and things, but I have 20% all around, got it done in RI. And the limit there is 70% all around (dumb, eh?) and I was never harrassed about it. So it's up to you, you can ride around with it until you get caught, then strip it, or strip it right away or whatever ya wanna do.

Keep your plates!

If you're registered in another state, nothing will happen. My buddy Jay is registered in Ohio and is smog exempt. If anything, keep your front windows rolled down. The back is fine.

Where in SoCal are you moving to? Me and my buddies meet up every Tuesday in Mira Mesa and we're always looking for a new guy .

I stay up in the City of Long Beach and I have 5% in the back 2 x and 5% 1x in the front. you can barely see out at night but in the day i have my rears up and my front ones half down. once i see a cop i roll them down lol but whatever the risk I have now is just getting a fix it ticket if i get pulled over. (where u just remove your front tint and go back to show them you did) anyway in my pics profile it shows i got 5% in the back and 50 in the front but I did my windows over because it was bugging me hehe. ill post new pics soon.
