I would say 35% all around just to avoid getting harassed.

Pictures definitely help make the decision, but also check the state laws:

this may be correct for NY http://www.tintcenter.com/laws/NY/

Just a note on state laws:

I got 35% on my car back in the day, and even though that was the legal limit and I thought I was good, I was ticketed and ordered to remove it because the stock glass had a trivial amount of tint in it. Not enough for me to ever have noticed, but enough to violate the Statie's meter.

That being said, I've seen some near perfect installs, but so many are mickey moused and look terrible.

I have a pic of someone who did 35% on the front and 20% for the rear. I'll post it when I get home if you still need it. As for a tinting place, I took the recommendation from the forum and went to Underground Tinting - 1566 Ocean Avenue Bohemia, NY. Ask for Rich @ 631-244-8468

Not a great angle, but 35% on front, 20% on rear. Perfect balance as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks! Got a red one up front also

I think you'll be happy with the 35/20. Definitely post pics once done!
