How dark can back windows be?
In the state of Illinois back windows tinting is allowed with a VLT of up to 35%. In some states, the film can be darker (up to 15%). The darkness of a tinting film is measured in VLT (visual light transmittance), or the amount of light that passes through the window. So the higher the number the lighter the tint and the more light it allows through. The darkest tint is 5% and usually only used on limousines and other special vehicles; it is illegal to use these films for back windows tinting.

Yes, the two back passenger windows can be tinted, as well as the rear window. Some states don’t even have any limits for the darkness that can be used on the back windows, so you can go as dark as you want.
Let’s say that for example you live in a state where there is no limit on tinting for the back windows, and you go as dark as possible. If you then travel to another state like Illinois where the limit is 35%, you risk getting pulled over and receiving a ticket. So as long as you don’t travel that much between states, you are safe.
These bubbles may appear during the application process, when water or air remains trapped between the window and the film. If the window was not cleaned properly before the application, the adhesive will not stick well and will leave room for air or water.
So the bubbles can be a sign of a poor application of the film, but they also may appear over time, as the tint starts to break down. In our shop we will make sure to not leave any bubbles or wrinkles behind, and even if that happens after some years, we will change it for free. We offer a lifetime warranty for labor, peeling, bubbling or fading.
