Has anybody gotten their front (driver/passenger) windows tinted to match the factory tint rears? Curious of what brand and percentage match for best results.

I put 20% all the way around including a 5% strip across the front windshield. Live in SC so it's hot but had it done in WV for $175 total. Looks great on a white vehicle!

Do check to see what regulations (probably at the state level) might apply to tinting of front side windows and the windshield before you proceed. In some jurisdictions, it is not permitted to tint those windows, or to tint them beyond a certain limit of light transmission.

I don't have to worry about that since I have a waiver on my registration stating I can have tint on my front windows. Medical issue.

My original question / answer I am seeking for is does anybody know what is the factory rear tint percent I want to match it up with my fronts. I will be doing the install myself.

Had ours measured by our tint installer. Rear measured at 24%. We installed 20 on front windows as more light comes in the windshield. Looks to match to us.

Installer uses 3M tint.

Your local tint shop should have a measuring tool, so should your local police. Both can be very nice, and quite mean. Just depends who you are better at asking a favor from.
