How dark can the window tint be on my car or truck?  
  
The windows on the front driver’s side and front passenger’s side must have a 70% light transmittance or greater in the front driver and passenger side windows.  No tint is allowed on the windshield.     As a general rule, if your vehicle has factory tinted glass, the addition of any tint will create a light transmittance of less than 70% and therefore be illegal.
