I have factory 15% on back doors and glass with 5% on top of that. Then just have 5% on front doors. It's a little hard to see out the back at night. I would think if you still want to see real good just go with 15%. That is what most factory tint is. Or double 15% wouldn't be too bad too see out at night.

for 5 windows its 150 bucks here...so figure 30/window. I have 20% on my truck, thats the same as factory privacy, looks great. still see out it at night and on dark rainy days OK. 5% is limo tint, 2.5% is double limo, and most shops cary 5%, 20% and 35% with 35 being real light, just enough to make it a little shady and block some heat.

04 Silverado 2500HD LB7/Allison, EFI live by duramaxtuner.com with DSP5, 4" MBRP turbo back straight pipe, polished 5" tip, 5% tint, riding on 285 fierce attitudes, many more mods....

I have 5% all the way around with 20% on the windshield and a 5% strip on the top of the windshield over the 20%. I love it. The white night and reverse camera help at night.

Yeah in most places. It is hear but you don't really get bothered if you don't have an Escalade with 24's.

A buddy of mine has a truck that pretty much like your colors etc. His windshield is tinted with I think 50%, the rest 5%. Looks good. You have to really look to see that the windshield is tinted though.
My windshield is next.
