question about tint

im bout to get 5% on the back and 20% in the front...

i was wondering if having 5% is really hard to see through at night? i live in a foggy area, so is that goin to be a problem?

thanks

I'd never go lower than 20%... the potential risks far outweigh the benefits

Not to mention you will get harassed by the police, even if it's not illegal.

They just don't like that shit.

5% in the back is hard to see at night, and thats why they made windows to stick your head out of.

5 % looks really good, i agree. It's so hard to see out of it, especially with the Celica's windows that i would NEVEr do it. I just got mine tinted 20% all the way around yesterday and i love it. I'd say get 20 for visibilty.
