google is your friend here

search string = auto tint regulations PA

first result is

www.tintcenter.com/laws/PA/

and it indicates
Windshield No tint is allowed on the windshield.
Front Side Windows Must allow more than 70% of light in.
Back Side Windows Must allow more than 70% of light in.
Rear Window Must allow more than 70% of light in.

BTW all of your local tint shops should know the state law.

In MO we get 35% light in and no regulations on back windows. Wow PA is really strict!

I have 40% all around including the windsheild....I dont know how accurate that site is since they sell most trucks/suv's with 15%-25% on the rear windows.

From what I have always been told the only law is no tint on windsheild and nothing below 70% on the front 2 windows.

If you have CA, then you need to search more on the forum about the type of tint. You need a 100% ceramic tint.

I am getting my E92 done with Pinnacle F1 tint for $365.

someone mention to me before that cops cant pull you over for tints as a first offense in the state of pa
what they can do is pull you over for a violation( speeding, red lights and etc) and then give you a tint ticket

im not sure how true this is but ( knock on wood ) i was never pulled over for tints
