tint color question

i have 35% tint in the front and 15% in the back...

for some reason in far away distance, the 35% tint in the front seems to be the color green...(not a light black, but a different, stock looking color)..

for people who has 35% tint in the front, is this wut its suppose to look like?

what % tint should i get fro the front to make it look not as green. i was planning on 20% in the front and keeping the 15% in the back...

thanks for all inputs.

(taking pictures wont help, becasue the pictures captures the darkness of the tint..only in person will it look like stockl tint)

The shop that did it for you probably used some cheap ass tint, they're suppose to look black no matter what the darkness is... just a matter of lighter or darker shade of black. When I did mine I specifically told them I didn't want anything that looks green or purple, just black... and it turned out really good!

The green is probably from the UV protection film that kills UV rays from the sun, it may have blended in with your tint. BTW my tint is 5% hehe...
