There are several reasons to avoid using too-dark window tints on your vehicle. These reasons range from aesthetic concerns to safety concerns. While dark window tints can make your vehicle look more stylish, they can also block your visibility and put you at risk of getting pulled over by law enforcement. Also, it may increase your insurance rates or get you fined if you drive through an area that prohibits dark window tints.
Other reasons to avoid too-dark window tints are safety concerns. In some states, a minimum percentage of VLT is required, so you can make your vehicle safer by limiting the tints’ darkening effect. In other states, there are stricter regulations. In Washington State, for example, tinting is only allowed on the windows and not the windshield. This rule varies from state to state, but in general, the limits are 35 percent. Some states allow a higher percentage and others allow no window tinting at all.
Lastly, you should check for proper installation of tints. While installing window tints on your vehicle, make sure to follow all state regulations. Installing them incorrectly can result in peeling.
